Benefits of FNUSA-ICRC
All activities of FNUSA-ICRC and its teams aim at transferimg knowledge „from bench to back and back“ and all results of its activities should ultimately benefit patients at St. Anne´s University Hospital and worldwide. Our research focuses on major diseases and disorders which affect ageing populations in most countries and aim to find effective solutions.
Foundation and existence of FNUSA-ICRC has brought the following benefits to the society in Brno, Czech Republic and the world:

- More than 200 jobs in medical research were created in our research and administrative teams.
- Almost every employee has had the opportunity to spend some time at foreign research institutions and bring new know-how and experience back to Brno.
- FNUSA-ICRC is visited by several hundred foreign experts severy year who share their knowledge with our staff members.
- We organise dozens of public lectures, seminars and workshops annually and these are open to reseachers and physicians from other research centres and hospitals as well as students.
