The Competence Center for Applied Biotechnology and Molecular Medicine (CABMM) is dedicated to fostering advances in clinically oriented research in the fields of regenerative medicine, experimental medicine and surgery, applied biotechnology, and molecular medicine. Embedded within both the Vetsuisse and Medical Faculties of Zurich University, it provides an inter-disciplinary research platform on which basic scientists and clinicians are able to exchange scientific information and create collaborations for the purpose of developing novel therapeutic approaches for the treatment of dysfunctional and diseased tissues.
