UMG will strengthen the translational alliance, particularly in the areas of omics technologies and imaging. "We are pleased to now be a partner of the alliance. We bring in our already well-developed expertise from translational research and hope to be able to make an important contribution to a transfer into rapid clinical application together with the other alliance partners from top research for Lower Saxony. We expect even more targeted and faster application possibilities from the joint and networked work in the alliance," says Prof. Dr. Wolfgang Brück, Spokesman of the Board of UMG and Dean of the Faculty of Medicine.
"UMG's joining is of great importance to TRAIN," says Prof. Dr. Ulrich Kalinke, head of the TRAIN office. "Göttingen has always been an important location in the Lower Saxony research landscape. We are very pleased that we are now connecting more closely with the University Medical Center Göttingen through the translational alliance."
The Translational Alliance in Lower Saxony TRAIN is a network of university and non-university research institutions. TRAIN bundles biomedical know-how and health research infrastructure in the Hannover-Braunschweig-Göttingen region. TRAIN's goals include the establishment of technology platforms to optimally promote the region's scientific infrastructure and the development of joint continuing education formats with a translational orientation.
