Basic data

Innovationen für Prävention, Diagnose und Therapie
01/10/2021 to 31/03/2022
Abstract / short description:
In the TheranosticValleySTR (STR = Research and Economic Region Stuttgart, Tübingen, Reutlingen), innovations from academic institutions as well as regional companies are synergistically brought together by means of novel organizational and management forms in the sense of an innovation pipeline in order to not only fundamentally improve the diagnosis and therapy of cancer, infectious and neurological diseases, but also to prevent a significant part of these diseases through a paradigm shift and novel prevention strategies. Novel concepts are being developed that take up innovations from basic research and further expand them in the future cluster TheranosticValleySTR. The diagnostics and therapies - Theranostica - coordinated by means of artificial intelligence methods are based on innovative small molecules, biologicals, cellular systems as well as completely novel microrobots and will form a milestone of personalized medicine through their combinatorial application. Through the special organizational form of TheranosticValleySTR and the close interaction between business and science, a flexible "on-demand" production and "in-time" delivery of personalized and combinatorial theranostics will be realized. A disruptive approach of TheranosticValleySTR, based on unconventional and large-scale global collection and analysis of patient data, is essential for disease prevention and prognosis assessment. TheranosticValleySTR will thus bring about not only an innovation push for novel combined diagnostic and therapeutic procedures, but a completely new quality of clinical diagnosis supported by machine learning methods, creating a novel service market. With the funding, the region will uniquely develop as an internationally visible and competitive TheranosticValleySTR.
