Research

Laboratory for Molecular Biomedicine (LMB) is well recognized for its research achievements and expertise in diagnosis of various rare diseases in Serbia as well as in the Balkan region. The research mission of LMB is oriented towards investigation of molecular basis of health and disease and translational biomedicine, in order toimplement genome-based, personalized medicine in healthcare system. LMB has established successful collaborations with a number of distinguished EU centres and their top class scientists resulting in joint papers and partnerships in significant projects. In addition, LMB has successful collaborations with eminent Serbian and Balkan healthcare institutions. Accumulated know-how has been translated into improvement of medical practice through molecular genetic diagnosis of genetic disorders and malignancies. Some of genetic testing in LMB are exclusively done in Balkan region. LMB team is actively engaged in educational activities within University of Belgrade with special emphasis on conducting multidisciplinary PhD thesis.LMB researchers are also devoted to promotion of molecular genetics, genomics and biomedicine at all levels.
