Demonstrators for an individualized medicine
Increasingly large quantities of medically relevant data can be systematically recorded and analyzed through modern high-throughput procedures and improvements in bioinformatics. Pilot projects are organized in e:Med module II “Demonstrators for an individualized medicine”, which should document the direct benefit and applicability of data records and mathematical models - developed in basic life sciences research - in individualized medicine.
The eight interdisciplinary demonstrator research groups began work in March 2015 and are funded in a total of approx. 18 million euro over a period of three years. The concrete objective of demonstrator projects is the system-oriented (further) development of innovative methods and models, which allow for existing data pools to be edited, analyzed and compared with one another accordingly, in order to enable their use directly in individualized prevention, diagnosis and therapy for human diseases, such as various types of cancer, Parkinson’s disease, heart failure and hematological diseases.
