Date:8/4/2009

EINDHOVEN, The Netherlands, August 4 /PRNewswire/ -- With today's final approval of a research project into prostate cancer, the Dutch CTMM (Center for Translational Molecular Medicine) today announced the successful completion of 265 million euro funding for translational (bench-to-bedside) medical research, making CTMM one of the largest public-private partnerships in the world. This pivotal point in the organisation's development firmly positions the Netherlands as one of the world's leading destinations for translational biomedical research.

"The 15 million euro allocated to this prostate cancer project, which brings the total allocated CTMM funding to 265 million euro, should enable the project team to make a real difference to the diagnosis and treatment of a disease that counts among the biggest killers of men," said Peter Luijten, CTMM Chief Scientific Officer.

With this final project approval, CTMM has fulfilled the initial objectives of its business plan by establishing public-private research consortia to address the world's most prevalent diseases. The CTMM project portfolio now comprises 18 projects conducting translational molecular medicine research into innovative new techniques for the diagnosis and treatment of cancer, cardiovascular, neurodegenerative and infectious/auto-immune disease. In total, more than 100 partners from industry and academia are involved in the projects, which are funded on the basis of 25% from industry, 25% from academia and 50% from the Dutch government.
