Centre for Biomedical Research

Centre for Biomedical Research is an integral part of the Faculty of Medicine of the University of Banja Luka, where scientific research is conducted and where the improvement of scientific research is encouraged. The Centre essentially trains students for scientific research, which makes the basis for publishing in scientific journals, participating in scientific projects and perfecting in teaching assistant and teaching professions.

In this Centre, candidates have the opportunity to work with a mentor on research projects (or clinical studies), conduct independent research, present results of their own research at scientific conferences and publish results in reference scientific journals. The plan for the work of the Centre also includes cooperation with other research laboratories.

The main mission of the Centre is to educate future researchers in the independent and creative application of scientific knowledge, specific to certain scientific research areas. By establishing the Centre, conditions have been met for researchers to apply for various research projects and to associate with similar institutions in the country and abroad. In addition, the Centre provides the opportunity for research for the students of doctoral studies. 

There is currently a trend where master’s thesis and doctoral dissertations are related to research which are based on the application of various laboratory and research techniques. The Biomedical Research Centre has the necessary laboratories to conduct all research.

  • Laboratory for Histology and Cell Biology (Pathology, Anatomy, Histology, Embryology, Electron Microscopy) 
  • Laboratory for Molecular Biology and Genetics
  • Immunology Laboratory
  • Laboratory for Microbiology
  • Laboratory for Biochemistry
  • Laboratory of Pharmacology and Toxicology
  • Laboratory of Physiology
  • Vivarium for Experimental animals. 

All these activities that will take place in this Centre will contribute to the independence of masters and doctors of science in scientific research development.
