Translational Medicine

Translational Medicine aims to carry advances in disease-oriented basic research “from bench to bedside” to develop new therapies or medical procedures. In turn, clinical observations and questions are the basis of new scientific hypotheses that are addressed in the laboratory (“from bedside to bench”).

Groups at the Gene Center follow this bidirectional concept in a highly interdisciplinary effort, to identify novel therapeutic targets, develop treatment strategies, validate them in a range of model organisms, and test them in preclinical and clinical trials.
