Who We Are
The International Clinical Research Center of St. Anne's University Hospital Brno (FNUSA-ICRC) is a new generation science and research center focusing on finding new methods, technologies and medicaments for effective prevention, early diagnostics and individualized treatment of cardiovascular and neurological diseases. These are among the most widespread diseases in modern society.
The center is based on the hospital’s successful, longtime cooperation with Mayo Clinic (USA) and other partners both in the Czech Republic and abroad.
The FNUSA-ICRC is composed of four key elements, which are:
- an international research and development center,
- a public health care center,
- an international education center,
- a center for cooperation with industry.
The close connection between medical research and clinical care enables it to put the results of the latest research programs into clinical practice as soon as possible, and to provide patients with constant access to the latest treatment methods and techniques.
The center, with a total budget of about 220 million USD for the period 2011 to 2015, was co-funded by European Union Structural Funds through the Operational Program Research and Development for Innovations. More information about financing can be found here.
At present, the number of employees in the FNUSA-ICRC is about 300, mainly specialists working in 27 international research teams.
