Dutch Top Institute Allocates 150 Million Euro to R&D Projects Targeting Early Diagnosis and Treatment of Disease
Date:4/1/2008

ogervorst, former Dutch Minister of Health and current Chairman of the CTMM Supervisory Board.

The selected CTMM projects focus on molecular medicine that aims to understand how diseases develop at the molecular and cellular level. Many of these projects are seeking to identify so-called 'biomarkers', such as abnormal proteins in the blood, that often appear long before the patient develops symptoms. Molecular medicine therefore has the potential to allow diagnosis and treatment at a much earlier stage than symptom-based diagnosis. Because treating disease in its early stages generally requires less aggressive interventions, this approach may lead to fewer side effects, better patient outcomes and more effective use of healthcare resources.

In the fall of 2008 CTMM will organise a second call for project proposals.

About CTMM

The CTMM (Center for Translational Molecular Medicine) is a Netherlands-based public-private partnership dedicated to the development of technologies in molecular medicine that enable early diagnosis and personalized treatment for oncology, cardiovascular, neurodegenerative and infectious disease - the four main areas of disease causing mortality and diminished quality of life in the western world. CTMM operates by inviting, assessing and funding multidisciplinary projects that involve active participation by Netherlands-based academia and industry. All CTMM projects are judged by an independent International Advisory Board and approved by a Supervisory Board based on their significant potential to translate research knowledge into clinical practice. The CTMM is funded by the Dutch government (50%), academia (25%) and industry (25%). For more information, visit http://www.ctmm.nl
