Grant Consulting Platform

Without cooperation, scientific success is actually impossible today. Therefore, as part of the newly created Grant Consulting Platform, we have invited experts from the Early Clinical Trials Unit, the Centre of Bioanalytics and the Centre of Biostatistics and Bioinformatics Analysis who can provide you with support at various stages of the implementation of research projects. We encourage you to contact directly and to consult at every stage of the research proces. The platform is based at the Centre for Excellence of Scientific Publications.
