“As the famous roman playwright Terence let one of his characters say: ‘Nihil tam difficile est, quin quaerendo investigari possit.’ Nothing is so difficult that it cannot be found out by seeking. Surely, finding out the mechanistic causes of disease and fighting it in a way that best suits the individual patient is not only a noble cause, but also an extremely difficult endeavour.

CeMM was founded to provide the scientific rationale for a more personalized, more precise medicine and propose mechanism-based therapeutic innovations. From the early success and the impressions during my visits it is already clear that CeMM can fulfil this ambitious and socially-relevant mandate with bravery and passion.

For sure we are fully committed to supporting this young institute of very high potential in the following important years.”
