The 19,000-square meter research center will house a complex of "specialized research laboratories of the Centre for Genetic Research, Physiology, Biochemistry, Microbiology and Laboratory Medicine, Infectious Diseases and Dermatovenereology, Breast Diseases, Immunology and Allergology, Dentistry, Neurology and Neurosurgery, Cardiovascular diseases, other clinics," the faculty has said in a press release.

Some of the medical study programs will be relocated to the new center. The complex will also include "a Simulation Center to develop practical skills in an environment as close as possible to real working conditions, conference halls, auditoriums, consultation, meeting and seminar rooms, offices for scientists and doctoral students, and practical training rooms".

The project, covering the construction of the building and state-of-the-art scientific equipment, is estimated to cost 47.1 million euros in total, including 33.1 million euros from the European Regional Development Fund.

The research center project is expected to be completed by the end of 2023.
