Excellence Strategy


A total of 23 institutions from the fields of healthcare and medical research, engineering, and basic scientific research work together under one roof at the ZPM. They make personalised medicine a reality by addressing various key issues that form the framework for personalised medicine in a clinical setting. The center’s activities reflect the 5 research areas of the Excellence Initiative platform 1, linking these to the appropriate clinical areas. Two representatives from medical or scientific research are responsible for each area. A central coordinating office works with both the center and the platform, keeping lines of communication direct.
