Innovation Center Innovative Therapeutics (TheraNova)

Our goal

 ... is to establish a scientific-industrial cluster in the Rhine-Main region. The Fraunhofer Institutes ITMP in Frankfurt/Main and IGD in Darmstadt will combine their expertise with that of partners from university research groups at the Johann Wolfgang Goethe University and the Max Planck Institute for Heart and Lung Research in Bad Nauheim.

All parties involved are working on a joint research and development portfolio of innovative therapeutics with the aim of exploring their potential for exploitation, of developing products and applications and thus sustainably improving patient care. 

Our focus

... is on the discovery and investigation of novel therapeutic entities such as proximity-inducing molecules, multispecific biotherapeutics, innovative fusion proteins and customised microbiota for the treatment of diseases with a high unmet medical need.
