“It is a pleasure to congratulate the Center of Molecular Medicine CeMM for its first research report. The Medical University of Vienna supports and fosters CeMM as an important project together with the Austrian Academy of Sciences. We look at CeMM as a strategic component of the strive of the Medical University of Vienna to maintain and further develop a leading role in biomedical research.
CeMM aims at bridging the gap between clinical and basic research and as such is hoped to ease the translation of many projects towards therapy and diagnostics. For this, CeMM’s location within the hospital campus and physically linked to the newest of the MUV research buildings is of paramount importance.
Finally, we are particularly happy about the training mission of CeMM. Besides many common projects CeMM is linked to the MUV with several common PhD programs, conferences, as well as young investigators with double appointments. Nothing is as valuable as the investment in students and young faculty and CeMM represents an important addition for the interdisciplinary training in molecular medicine.
On behalf of the entire faculty and MUV personnel we welcome CeMM as a special partner to our research community and wish it, for our own sake, a great future.”
