Dutch Public-Private Partnership Invests 28 Million Euro on Research Into Personalized Medicine
Date:2/15/2010

GELEEN-EINDHOVEN-LEIDEN, The Netherlands, February 15, 2010 /PRNewswire/ -- The Netherlands' three Top Institutes for life-science research (the BioMedical Materials program, the Center for Translational Molecular Medicine and Top Institute Pharma) today announced a joint investment of MEUR 28 on innovative research targeted at bringing personalized medicine closer to reality. The projects funded by the group will focus on developing new ways of delivering drugs to specific disease sites within the human body, thereby reducing the required doses, minimizing unwanted side effects and increasing the drugs' effectiveness. Together with the development of tailored drug therapies, the imaging guided and targeted drug delivery techniques that these newly funded projects aim to develop, are widely regarded as one of the keys to highly personalized medicine.

The 7 projects for which funding was announced today are mainly aiming for therapies for cardiovascular diseases and cancer. Combined, they bring together 12 knowledge institutes and 14 industrial parties. The projects result from a joint call for project proposals that was initiated by the three Top Institutes in recognition of the fact that imaging guided and targeted drug delivery is a highly interdisciplinary area of research that leverages their individual strengths - TI Pharma in drug development, CTMM in molecular diagnostics and imaging, and BMM in biomaterials and regenerative medicine. The 7 new projects are the first to encompass competencies from all three institutes.

"With this joint initiative of the three public-private partnerships in the Dutch life-sciences sector, the Netherlands stimulates collaboration and cooperation between industry and academia on a size and scale that is unique in
