welcome !

Welcome to the home page of TransPOT, a European Commission-funded programme awarded to the University of Crete Medical School which aims to enhance technology and research in Translational Medicine.

An established community of active scientists have built a solid reputation in research at our institution over the last few decades, aiming for excellence in areas of major biomedical importance, such as stem cell biology, autoimmune, cardiovascular, malignant and degenerative diseases. TransPOT will however provide a much-needed boost to the research community here, by providing access to state-of-the-art infrastructure and services in the fields of Regenerative Medicine and Genomics. With the acquisition of this award, the University of Crete can attract high-calibre scientists to the local research community and establish wider networks with major research centres across Europe. Supported by this EC-funded programme, we aspire to lead the field, locally and nationally, in translational medical research, which will bring direct scientific, healthcare and social benefits to the region.

TransPOT: "Enhancing University of Crete Medical School Scientific Excellence and Translational Research Potential in Human Diseases".
