The CMMC research areas

The three CMMC research areas enhance and strengthen innovative molecular research with clinical reference

The CMMC fosters interdisciplinary collaboration from the laboratory to the clinic as well as offers an exceptional training ground for the next generation of scientists and clinicians having a strong interest in and firm commitment to biomedical research. The research projects supported by the different funding programs are grouped within three CMMC core research areas:

Research Area A

Mechanisms of tumor development: intrinsic and extrinsic control of cell proliferation and tissue invasion

Research Area B

Principles of immunity, inflammation and infection

Research Area C

Molecular mechanisms and metabolic control of tissue degeneration and regeneration
