The Center for Translational Medicine (CTM) is a highly interdisciplinary research platform in the International Clinical Research Center (FNUSA-ICRC), a European Union-funded project of the St. Anne’s University Hospital Brno (Czech Republic). The funds so far collected from EU were mostly used to build its own state-of-the-art translational medical research premises. The research center, currently hosts young promising researchers and students from all over the world (9 nationalities represented) and aims at unveiling the molecular mechanisms involved in the onset and progression of the diseases of aging. For this purpose, CTM adopts original and interdisciplinary approaches based on the use of smart materials, microfluidics systems, bioreactors, mechanically-assisted devices and multi-faceted molecular and cellular biology skills to investigate the molecular basis of complex diseases.  more

Membership Application

PACT was conceived in acknowledgement of the long and globally recognized academic excellence, the excellent teaching and training capabilities and the exceptional research infrastructure that the four Foundation Partners can confer in the provision of an exceptionally strong synergistic potential in cutting edge health-care and socioeconomic advancement of Austria and with other partners in Europe.


PACT proposes to join intellectual and structural resources leading to the establishment of advanced cellular therapies. It will provide a forum to achieve a unified community of mutual interests and collaborations. It is expected that this approach can offer a model to accelerate the concept, development and application of cell based therapies or treatments with significantly positive outcomes to patients.


The Foundation Partners propose to establish and harmonize research groups working on Molecular, Cellular and Regenerative Medicine as associate and/or affiliate members in mutual research efforts within the PACT. To this end, the Steering Group of PACT has opened the membership as associate or affiliate members to all other interested persons or groups within universities or institutes with this common interest.


Furthermore, PACT is interested in establishing a regular collaboration with industrial partners and will welcome their support as regular corporate members. For Corporate Membership the industrial partners will be kindly asked to support PACT with an annual fee of currently EUR 1,000 (one-thousand). This fee covers the period of one year. Signature of the Corporate Membership Application Form imposes a two year commitment to PACT as Corporate Member.
