The main achievement and confirmation of its leading role in research is the objective position of the MUG’s faculties in independent parametric analysis. The Ministry of Science and Higher Education ranked the MUG’s Faculty of Medicine, the Faculty of Health Sciences with grades A, and the Faculty of Pharmacy and Intercollegiate Faculty of Biotechnology UG & MUG with a grade A+.

Leaders of the project “Mutations acquired during lifetime that lead to increased risk for human disease, with focus on cancer” (acronym 3P-Medicine – Preventive, Personalised, Precision) are prof. Arkadiusz Piotrowski Ph.D. from the Department of Biology and Pharmaceutical Botany and prof. Jan Dumański from the Department of Immunology, Genetics and Pathology at the University of Uppsala.
