Medizinische Universität Graz
The Medical University of Graz (MUG) is associated with the University Clinics of Graz, one of the largest hospitals in Europe. This facilitates close integration of research and routine clinical services. An important asset of MUG is its biobank core-facility, hosting more than 3 million formalin-fixed paraffin-embedded (FFPE) and more than 30,000 cryoconserved samples and associated medical data for research. This resource has been established at the Institute of Pathology during the last decade within the Austrian Genome Programme (GEN-AU). Furthermore, MUG routinely performs a wide spectrum of molecular diagnostic analyses and provides ISO 9001:2000-certified molecular analysis platforms for research.
