Fraunhofer ITMP

Our expertise lies in the research of therapeutic and diagnostic innovations for diseases that are currently untreatable or insufficiently treatable. In preclinical research, we use state-of-the-art technologies, such as various MultiOMICs methods, to explore therapeutic approaches and diagnostic biomarkers. In addition, we develop novel experimental systems and disease models to characterize target molecules and their modulators (drugs) in vitro, ex vivo and in vivo. Our expertise in pharmaceutical chemistry and technology enables us to optimize new active ingredients as well as their dosage form. In the area of clinical research, our core expertise lies in the planning (study design) and quality-assured execution of clinical studies, as well as in the early clinical development of drug candidates in our in-house Phase I station. Our biobank enables basic scientific analysis for the further characterization of diseases in our indication focus immune-mediated diseases and pain.

Our expertise/contribution:

  • pharmaceutical chemistry and technology
  • preclinical disease models
  • various MultiOMICs technologies
  • planning, design and quality-assured conduct of clinical trials
  • phase I unit
  • biobanks

Fraunhofer IGD

Fraunhofer IGD, with locations in Darmstadt, Rostock and Kiel, stands for excellent software solutions in visual computing, image- and model-based informatics.

We transform information into images and images into information. Keywords are human-machine interaction, virtual and augmented reality, artificial intelligence, interactive simulation, modelling as well as 3D printing and 3D scanning.

We design new technological application solutions and prototypes for Industry 4.0, digital healthcare and the "Smart City".

Johann Wolfgang Goethe-University Frankfurt

The Johann Wolfgang Goethe University has a strong research focus and is located in the European financial center Frankfurt am Main. The University was founded in 1914 as a unique “citizens’ university” by wealthy Frankfurt citizens . Today, it is one of the largest universities in Germany. Within the last decade, the university has undergone a very dynamic process of change, including an almost complete renewal of the entire building infrastructure. In the "Science City Riedberg", the natural science departments are united in the immediate vicinity of two Max Planck Institutes. The medical campus Niederrad with the university hospital is also being completely renewed.

The University Hospital Frankfurt and the Department of Medicine at Goethe University work very closely together. The University Hospital Frankfurt consists of a total of 32 specialized department and clinical institutes. Together with the Department of Medicine and the more than 20 research institutes, the University Hospital forms the University Medicine Frankfurt. In this way, we ensure the linking of teaching, research and patient care. Together we want to use the special opportunities for training future generations of doctors as well as the chances to integrate scientific findings directly into patient care.

Max Planck Institute for Heart and Lung Research Bad Nauheim

Our goal is to use modern scientific technologies to understand the molecular basis of development, function and disease of the heart, vascular system and lungs, as well as other organ systems. The results of our curiosity-driven basic research provide the basis for innovative diagnostic and therapeutic approaches in medicine. To this end, we cooperate nationally and internationally with other scientists within various research networks. Our current staff of about 400 is recruited from all corners of the globe, creating an inspiring international working atmosphere.
