SZU logo

The Research Base of the Slovak Medical University, Bratislava is the only institution in Slovakia entirely focused on medical research, carrying out experimental and clinical research. The Research Base has participated in numerous EU projects within the 5th and 6th Framework Programmes as well as PHARE and NIH projects. Slovak Medical University is an EU Centre of Excellence in Environmental Health Research (HEAR NAS). The CoE is creating multidisciplinary research groups on projects aimed at reducing the negative impact of environmental factors on health. Relevant expertise: The scientific team involved in COMICS have a high level of expertise in environmental monitoring, biomonitoring, environmental and occupational epidemiology and genetic toxicology, and experience in development of new biomarkers of exposure, effect and genetic susceptibility, and genetic polymorphisms.
