10th anniversary of the Center for Preclinical Testing of Active Substances
In the 2018-year, Center for Preclinical Testing of Active Substances (FP7 project CPCTAS, GA 206809, 2008-2011.) marks 10 years since its foundation. Further developing the Center idea and activities, the Project of the Serbian Ministry for Education, Science and Technological Development “Preclinical Testing of Bioactive Substances” (ПИБАС, ИИИ41010) implements scientific, research and educational interdisciplinary activities in the field of biomedicine and biotechnology. Faculty of Science (FS) is a coordinator of the Project, and main partners are Faculty of Medical Sciences and Faculty of Economics at the University of Kragujevac. In the period of 2011 – 2018 Project researchers published over 1450 references, of which more than 600 in the internationally recognized monographies and journals (M10 and M20), 22 PhD dissertations were successfully defended; from 89 researchers working on the Project 40 were newly employed with research and scientific titles. In 2018, 25 researchers with scientific and research titles were employed by the Project on mentioned faculties, 20 on FS.
