mc3 – Multidisciplinary Centre for Chronic Conditions is an open international cross-discipline research platform for scientists working in the field of chronic conditions that have formal or informal links with the Department of Social and Behavioural Medicine, Faculty of Medicine, PJ Safarik University in Kosice, Slovakia.

mc3 carries out  research on factors that prevent the development or exacerbation of chronic diseases  as well as on factors that help eliminate health disparities caused by chronic diseases and that promote health, well-being and quality of life. mc3 forwards research in the field of chronic diseases towards non-pharmacological interventions and patient-reported outcomes. mc3 researchers conduct basic, translational, and clinical research contributing to biobehavioural and psychosocial innovations in chronic condition management. mc3 promotes development and implementation of patient-centered, integrated models of care.
