Led by enthusiastic professionals, we strive to create and sustain a top quality research environment for both international and local exceptional scientists.
MedILS represents an embodiment of founders’ long-lasting initiative to establish an international centre of excellence, leading in the area of life sciences, located in Split, Croatia.
Research endeavours of MedILS are primarily focused on developing highly original, multidisciplinary approaches designed to provide novel insights into the fundamental concepts of molecular organisation and functioning of living organisms. Supported by leading investigators and research institutions in the field of natural sciences, as well as the state-of-the-art technologies acquired from its partner institutions and collaborators, MedILS has already set the scene for an ambitious and highly productive future.
The Mediterranean Institute for Life Sciences – MedILS is a life science institute in Split, Croatia, envisioned as an international centre of excellence for molecular biology. It is located in a park on
one of the most beautiful stretches of Croatia’s Adriatic coast. MedILS offers a unique setting for high‐quality workshops and conferences. The Institute features several fully equipped lecture and seminar rooms.
Accommodation is available in‐house (hotel complex on the upper floors). Guests are accommodated in comfortable two‐ and three‐bed rooms with private bathrooms. All rooms are fully air‐conditioned and provide telephone and high‐speed Internet access.
