Molecular Fingerprinting Centre Inaugurated in Hungary by Nobel Prize Winner
The Centre for Molecular Fingerprinting (CMF), a research base for applying laser technology to health monitoring, was inaugurated in Szeged, in south-eastern Hungary.

CMF chief executive Ferenc Krausz, the Nobel Prize-winning physicist, said the centre aimed to develop cost-effective health monitoring solutions that could detect disease early, supporting positive outcomes.

CMF is collecting blood samples from 10,000 Hungarians, mostly volunteers, to support its work, he added.

CMF is hosted by the ELI ALPS superlaser centre.

The “CMF Summit 2024 – At the Forefront of Disease Profiling” coincided with the opening of the laboratory.

Prof Dr Krausz, along with the Nobel laureates Katalin Karikó and Gerard Mourou, delivered lectures at the event.
