EUR 900 million for German molecular imaging research

Abstract:
The German Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF) and partners from German industry have announced a 900 million (approx $1.25 billion) investment in molecular imaging research. The so-called 'Innovation Alliance Molecular Imaging' will provide funding for joint projects involving the research and industry sectors. The aim is to develop new contrast media, devices and software.

In the future, molecular imaging will help doctors to examine the human body more closely, diagnose diseases more quickly and improve treatment, said Annette Schavan, Germany's Research Minister. 'We want to dovetail research and industrial activities in molecular imaging,' she added. 'Our joint investment in this technology will greatly benefit people's health as well as Germany as a research and business location.'
