Semmelweis University, Hungary's top medical school, and the local unit of pharmaceutical company Roche have signed a strategic agreement, Roche Hungary said on Wednesday, according to a report by state news wire MTI.

Their cooperation is expected to be "a big step forward" in their joint research and development in the areas of oncology, hematology, immunology, neurology and ophthalmology, Roche Hungary said.

Supporting education, sharing international experience and developing domestic practices will all play an important role in the joint work, which will focus on personalised medicine, value-based healthcare and data-driven healthcare decision-making, it added.

Roche has conducted around 70 clinical trials in various diseases with the university over the past five years, it said.

The agreement was signed by rector Béla Merkely and chancellor Lívia Pavlik on behalf of the university and managing director Raffaella Claudia Bondi on behalf of Roche Hungary.
