Launch of IMIDIA - An Innovative Medicines Initiative Project for Diabetes
Date:6/14/2010

essary innovation tightly coupled with the applications and evaluation of these results to develop new diagnostics, prognostics and therapeutics. Around 100 researchers operating in 6 different scientific work packages will focus on novel approaches e.g. imaging biomarkers, systems biology and pathway analysis with the goal of developing patient relevant disease models in vitro and in vivo as well as biomarkers to monitor disease progression and treatment.

"It has been fascinating to see how a powerful consortium has been formed starting from the different worlds of academic research and the pharmaceutical industry research organizations," Werner Kramer from sanofi-aventis, Bernard Thorens from University of Lausanne and Alain Ktorza from Servier, the "Triumvirate" coordinating IMIDIA, agree. "Guided by a sustainable win-win situation for all participants, the collaborative spirit coupled with the free flow of information and data within the IMIDIA project teams will support us - the IMIDIA team - in our endeavour to reach these ambitious goals."

About IMIDIA:

The IMIDIA team, led by sanofi-aventis, Servier and the University of Lausanne is working on the generation of novel, patient centric tools, biomarkers, and fundamental knowledge on ss-cell organization to accelerate the path to improved diabetes management.

The scientific program aims at delivering:

Novel tools for the study of human ss-cell development, function and survival; their modulation by potential therapeutic compounds; and for in vivo ss-cell imaging.

Biomarkers for the diagnosis and prognosis of ss-cell failure and for monitoring diabetes progression and treatment.
