Translational medicine contributes steadily and substantially to the development of new approaches for the diagnosis and treatment of diseases that are inadequately understood or controlled. The field of translational medicine spans the value chain, from target identification through active agent screening and translational preclinical validation to clinical trials. One research focus is the repositioning of known active agents within the disease areas of pain, rheumatoid arthritis, sepsis, multiple sclerosis and inflammation. We offer a specialized spectrum of disease models as well as highly sensitive analysis, bioinformatics and biomarker platforms. Our clinical trials follow quality-by-design standards to reduce attrition rates and generate as much scientifically relevant information as possible.
The research area is distributed between the locations Hamburg (ScreeningPort) and Frankfurt (Translational Medicine and Pharmacology).
