Without restrictions regarding the specific medical area or indication, each scientific innovation with the potential of translation from basic research to clinical application is being supported. Currently, TüCAD2 supports projects in oncology, infectious diseases, regenerative medicine and cardiovascular diseases. High quality projects are highlighted and made visible to potential external collaborators.
In addition, TüCAD2 offers coaching and consultancy in terms of academic drug discovery, project setup, validation, development plans and project management through internal resources and external networks of experts.
Another key asset is TüKIC, the Tübingen Kinase Inhibitor Collection, a >8.000 compound proprietary library of fully characterized kinase inhibitors with more than 1 Mio. data sets.
The platform focuses various regional expertises. Thus there is a close collaboration between the University of Tübingen, the University Hospital of Tübingen, the Dr. Margarete Fischer-Bosch-Institute of Clinical Pharmacology (IKP) Stuttgart and the Natural and Medical Sciences Institute (NMI) Reutlingen.
