The Translational Interventional Endoscopy Center (TIEC) was established in the framework of the GINOP-2.3.2-15-2016-00048 Stay Alive project at the 1st Department of Medicine, PTE. In addition to the most advanced endoscopic equipment, the center, which is well-equipped at international level, has also acquired anesthesia machines and X-ray equipment for intervention. Thus, in severe conditions such as necrotizing pancreatitis, instead of prolonged major surgical interventions, minimal endoscopic interventions for the patient are available.
In January 2016, University of Pécs was the first academy in Hungary to institutionalize translational medicine, and since then the Center has been expanding its range of collaboration opportunities. In recent years, research cooperation with more than 400 foreign institutions has been established, which is reflected in the growing number of scientific publications: 20% of the nearly 300 publications of the Faculty of Medicine this year are related to the Translational Medicine Center.
