International Cooperations

The MDC is continually developing and maintaining scientific and research relations between our institute and other higher educational and research institutes worldwide. Currently, MDC scientists have cooperations with researchers from over 30 countries.

About 61% of MDC scientific papers in 2015 were published in co-authorship with international partners from the USA, the UK, France, Switzerland, the Netherlands among others.

Approximately 45% of the MDC research staff (including PhD students, 2015) have a foreign nationality (Italy, China, Poland, India, France, etc.).

MDC is a founding member of the EU-LIFE, an alliance of top research centres in life sciences to support and strengthen European research excellence.
