Hessen funds medicine centre

Hessen's state government is to provide €20 million to set up a centre for translational medicine and pharmacology at the Goethe University Frankfurt.

The money, to cover the centre’s costs from 2015 to 2017, will be provided by the state’s Loewe research fund. The Fraunhofer Society and the Max Planck Institute for Heart and Lung Research are project partners.

In an announcement on 5 December, Boris Rhein, Hessen’s science minister, said that the centre would help to “close the gap between basic research and clinical application”, transferring innovation to medical practice. "This is a unique opportunity to take pioneering steps in the fight against diseases such as multiple sclerosis and rheumatoid arthritis," he said.
