Molecular Medicine Center (MMC) is a collaborative, multidisciplinary research center in Medical University - Sofia established in 2005 with the support of the Specific Support Action Program of the European Union under FP6 and further by the National Science Fund, Ministry of Education and Science in 2006 (DRI15/ 2006-2008), 2008 (CVP01/0123, 2008-2010) and 2009 (URC_09_0003/ 2009-2014) to increase the research capacity for innovative research.

The mission of the center is to merge existing and create critical mass of resources and research in the field of molecular medicine, genetics and epidemiology in Bulgaria, and to develop into a high-profile national and regional Center of Excellence in Molecular Medicine.

As a next stage of development, in 2009 MMC together with its national partners established a National University Complex for Biomedical and Translational research, which will create research clusters and increase the capacity for fundamental, clinical and translational research.
