Cooperation with universities

Merging theory with practice, we cooperate with top Slovak universities to be able to provide education to a new generation of professional scientists in biomedicine:

Comenius University in Bratislava

  • Faculty of Medicine
  • Faculty of Natural Sciences


Pavol Jozef Šafárik University in Košice

  • Faculty of Medicine
  • Faculty of Science


Slovak University of Technology in Bratislava

  • Faculty of Electrical Engineering and Information Technology


MGA maintains close contact with academic institutions. Our experts provide bachelor, master and doctoral thesis consultations and tutoring. The most outstanding theses are financially rewarded by MEDIREX GROUP ACADEMY. MGA creates space for talented students, allowing them to put theory into practice. Moreover, students interested in specific topics of laboratory diagnostics and research and development are supported by our scholarship programme.

Linking biomedicine with bioinformatics is an integral part of modern science and research. Slovakia lacks the required number of knowledgeable experts in the field, its education of young experts being insufficient as well. In the light of this, our goal is to widen the cooperation with top academic partners to provide better education in this field and to make bioinformatics a full-fledged part of biomedical research.

Establishing educational exchange programmes based on cooperation with foreign academic institutions, especially in postgraduate biomedicine, is another major objective of MGA’s strategy. For example, doctoral programmes established in cooperation with foreign universities will increase the level of postgraduate education in biomedicine, transferring knowledge into research activities carried out by MGA or the Centre for Excellent Biomedical Research.



Students who are interested in clinical biochemistry, haematology and blood transfusion, clinical immunology and allergology, and medical genetics are encouraged to apply for MGA’s scholarships. Granted for a specific semester, this funding aims to help cover the financial costs associated with the winter or summer semester studies in the academic year the scholarship is made available for.

MGA Diploma Thesis Awards

We have been supporting the education and professional growth of young talented researchers for several years by rewarding the best diploma theses written by students of the Faculties of Medicine and Natural Sciences of Comenius University and Pavol Jozef Šafárik University with a financial grant amounting to 1,000 €.





Clinical Biochemistry teaching fundamentals

In cooperation with MGA, the Institute of Medical and Clinical Biochemistry, Faculty of Medicine, Pavol Jozef Šafárik University, created a common teaching basis for clinical biochemistry in 2005. Today, this subject is compulsory for all 5th year students of the Faculty of Medicine in general medicine, comprised of 14 lectures and 14 seminars in total. Lectures in clinical biochemistry are given to Slovak as well as foreign students by lab specialists.

“The clinical biochemistry teaching methods have received very positive feedback from students. What is more, starting with the academic year 2015/2016, even dental medicine students are going to be included in this type of education. Based on our students’ requests, we are considering increasing the number of lessons of clinical biochemistry for general medicine students. Cooperation with colleagues from practical clinical biochemistry has been useful and inspiring. Three postgraduate lab technicians have successfully defended their doctoral theses in clinical biochemistry. The institute helped them increase their qualification, which opened the door to a wide range of possibilities for cooperation in science and research.“

Lab Open Day

The purpose of the Lab Open Day in the largest central labs in Bratislava and Košice is to show students just how interesting the work in laboratories can be. Absorbing lectures and an attractive tour de labs given by the staff can help Slovak and foreign students link their theoretical knowledge with laboratory practice. The Lab Open Day can provide great inspiration for students interested in science and research in the field of biomedicine. See the gallery. For more information, contact us at
