Center for Applied Biotechnology and Molecular Medicine (CABMM)
The Center for Applied Biotechnology and Molecular Medicine (CABMM) is an official competence centre of the University of Zurich, Switzerland, which is dedicated to fostering advances in clinically oriented, translational research in the fields of regenerative medicine, experimental medicine and surgery, applied biotechnology, and molecular medicine.
The centre demonstrates a unique structure, in that it combines (i) a network of existing research groups interested in exchanging scientific information and creating collaborations; and (ii) an interdisciplinary working platform on which basic scientists and clinicians from human as well as veterinary medicine are able to work together shoulder to shoulder for the purpose of developing novel therapeutic approaches for the treatment of dysfunctional and diseased tissues.
Another special feature is the fact that we do not focus on one particular medical field, but rather on translational and interdisciplinary aspects. Furthermore, the CABMM offers expertise in regulatory affairs: Good Manufacturing Practice (GMP) and Good Laboratory Practice (GLP) were established by two leading members of the CABMM at the Institute for Regenerative Medicine and the Musculoskeletal Research Unit, respectively.
