Our partners from the Institute of Human Physiology and Clinical Experimental Research of the Sammelweis University's Faculty of Medicine have extended their hospitality to Dora Polšek, one of the associates of Glowbrain project.
The Medical Faculty founded in 1769 is the largest and the oldest faculty in Hungary. The Institute is located in a wonderful modern building in the south part of Budapest. It's main research focus is to investigate the physiological and pathological mechanisms of the central and peripheral circulatory system.
The Laboratory of tissue engineering and cell based therapy led by Dr. Zsombor Lacza concentrates on stem cell related therapies for circulatory diseases as well as innovative approaches to bone grafts and sutures treated with stem cells and other ground breaking research. Working with in vitro models, animal models and human samples obtained from collaboration with local clinics, the team is focused on developing practical and patentable knowledge that can be used in therapies for treatment of different diseases including stroke. This knowledge and innovative approach practiced in this lab will be of great importance in upgrading stem cell research on the GlowBrain project and University of Zagreb School of Medicine.
