Main research priorities

The main focuses of the research at Paracelsus Medical Private University are in the area of the regenerative medicine:

  • Neurosciences
  • Oncological, immunological and allergic diseases
  • Musculoskeletal diseases, biomechanics and sports medicine
  • Metabolic diseases


In this respect, there is also a high level of interaction between the individual work groups with many partners domestically and abroad.

With the new research and teaching building in Salzburg, which was opened in November 2013, the most modern infrastructure and common core facilities are available to the researchers of the leading laboratories and institutes of Paracelsus University and the Spinal Cord and Injury Tissue Regeneration Center Salzburg – SCI-TReCS. The GMP Laboratory (Good Manufacturing Practice) offers the necessary clean room conditions for the development and manufacturing of cell-therapeutic products.
