Ceremonial ribbon cutting at the Department of Experimental Medicine

      On Wednesday, November 25, 2015 there was a ceremonial opening of the reconstructed premises of the Department of Experimental Medicine UPJŠ MF in Košice, which was also equipped with new facilities and excellent instrumentation technology from projects of EU structural funds CEMIO, PROBIO and PROBIOTECH implemented in the previous period, totaling more than 2 millions €. As the fifth department in the world gained ÚEM an unique experimental model "Simulator of the human microbial ecosystem TWINSHIME", which will significantly contribute to the implementation of projects under the new research program aimed at studying the role of intestinal microflora in the pathogenesis of chronic diseases and possibilities of targeted modulation of their prevention and therapy. The device is designed for the study of physical-chemical, enzymatic and microbial processes in vitro and ideally simulates the operation of the human digestive system.
