The project, its implementation and objectives were presented in the speeches delivered by: Prof. Radzisław Kordek, the Rector of MUL, Prof. Lucyna Woźniak, Vice Rector for Research Strategy and International Relations MUL, Jacek Grabowski PhD, The Chancellor of MUL, and Prof. Agnieszka Piastowska-Ciesielska, the project manager.

The invited guests could also make their presentations and all the participants could visit the building.

The project objectives include strengthening the cooperation of research and development units of MUL , the formation of interdisciplinary research teams as well as giving access to our ecosystem to economic partners or other research units in the region.

The available facilities now include specialist laboratories: Laboratory for Analysis of Compounds of Natural Origin, Laboratory of Metabolic Research, Laboratory for Molecular Diagnostics, Cell Culture Laboratory as well as laboratories for temporary use by the research teams which will be established for the project research tasks.

Research and development undertaken as part of BRaIn Project will focus on three major areas: organisation and process management in health care, personalised medicine and the application of bioinformatics and biostatistics in medicine.

Researchers can use the laboratory, its equipment or meeting rooms via a booking system on the Internet. When researchers have a research idea but do not have the appropriate equipment to carry it out, BRaIn is exactly the place they need. The research can both be commissioned to be conducted or it can be carried out individually by the researchers themselves. The team of BRaiN laboratories will provide support and advice on the best research methods and standardisation. The facilities will be available for researchers 24/7.

BRaIn is another significant element of the Clinical and Didactic Centre development. What we place an emphasis on here is research and innovations. We wish to increase the efficiency of the implementation of research projects  and the effectiveness of our use of the created infrastructure in line with the researchers’ needs. The place will be available and  open for all those with research ideas: both students scientific circles or doctoral students and experienced research teams who want to implement their projects.  I am convinced that such an approach will also make BRaIn project favourably affect the quality of our university’s cooperation with social and economic, said prof. Radzisław Kordek, Rector of Medical University of Lodz.

The currently operating and developing CKD campus infrastructure  i.e. outpatient clinics, the hospital, the research and didactic centre are crucial for the project success and its more effective deployment. The authors of the project aim at creating  ‘the training ground’ to test organisational and technological innovations as well as conducting clinical research, says prof. Agnieszka Piastowska-Ciesielska, the project manager.
