FNUSA-ICRC received 130 million CZK

International Clinical Research Center of St. Anne’s University Hospital Brno (FNUSA-ICRC) received 130 million CZK from the budget of the Ministry of Health of the Czech Republic for its research in 2021. So far, the center does not have to limit its activities in any way and can continue to develop its successful projects.

When in June this year, the International Clinical Research Center was visited by a ministerial commission headed by prof. Roman Prymula, the current Minister of Health, had a reason for that. Among other things, its members wanted to get acquainted in more detail with the functioning of the center and its scientific activities. The Commission evaluated the visit very positively, the result of their evaluation is the current financial support in the amount of 130 million CZK for 2021, guaranteeing the continuation of all existing research. “We are just happy for that. FNUSA-ICRC is a unique center of clinical research, directly associated with medical facilities. It would certainly be a pity if the research in it was to be limited due to lack of funds,” said the director of the  St. Anne’s University Hospital Brno Ing. Vlastimil Vajdák.

“I am convinced that this support is mainly due to the excellent results of our scientists. I would like to thank them for their work and support even at a time when funding was uncertain. I appreciate this and I hope that the financial resources will allow us to fully build on existing basic and clinical research and further develop it, whether in the field of cardiology, neurology and many others,” added  Pavel Iványi, LL.M. ., MBA., CEO of FNUSA-ICRC.
