Enhancing University of Crete Medical School Scientific Excellence and Translational Research Potential in Human Diseases


At the University of Crete Medical School, in the convergence region of Crete, Greece, there have been concerted efforts to establish a multidisciplinary scientific environment which will foster excellence in research in areas of major biomedical importance, such as stem cell biology, autoimmune, cardiovascular, malignant and degenerative diseases. The TransPOT support program aims to accelerate these efforts by enhancing the technological capability of the Institution in the fields of regenerative medicine and genomics through the establishment of state-of-the-art infrastructure, attracting high-calibre scientists and by networking with major research entities in Europe. Through a coherent set of measures, TransPOT thus aims to unlock the regional research potential and achieve sustainable scientific excellence, serving as strategic investment for the region by bringing multiple scientific, healthcare, economic and social benefits and accelerating its convergence with the rest of EU.
