Translational Research Projects at the Department of Pharmacology and Toxicology
At the Institute of Pharmacology and Toxicology, we aim to address unmet medical and societal needs.
Our projects are deeply rooted in fundamental research, always associated with the question whether, how, and when to translate. Along this path, a diverse set of challenges has to be addressed by an interdisciplinary team of basic, applied, and clinical scientists. To bring our strategies closer to application, we exploit induced pluripotent stem cell, organoid, and tissue engineering models in combination with data science and latest molecular, genetic, and proteomic measures. To facilitate true translation, private-public partnerships are essential. Repairon GmbH (tissue engineered heart repair), myriamed GmbH (drug development in patient-in-the-dish models), and myriameat GmbH (edible bioengineered meat) are examples for our efforts to bridge the gap.
