Eureka Alert

“We are extremely pleased to be able to establish Germany’s first Collaborative Research Center for Diagnostic Radiology, and to act as the lead institution in this project. It is a remarkable achievement,” says Prof. Dr. Axel Radlach Pries, the Dean of Charité. He adds: “We were also successful in our bids for two new Collaborative Research Centers with Charité involvement and secured the extension of an existing Collaborative Research Center. These funding approvals are a testament to the quality of the applicants, and they will allow us to further develop and strengthen our translational research endeavors.”

Collaborative Research Center SFB 1340: ‘In vivo visualization of pathological changes in the extracellular matrix – Matrix in Vision’

Lead institution: Charité – Universitätsmedizin Berlin Participating partners: Freie Universität Berlin, Technische Universität Berlin, Max Planck-Institute for Colloids and Interfaces, Bundesanstalt für Materialforschung und -prüfung (BAM),The National Metrology Institute of Germany (PTB) Funding amount: Approx. €11.5 million

The new ‘Matrix in Vision’ Collaborative Research Center (SFB) will investigate the use of diagnostic imaging technology to visualize pathological changes within the extracellular matrix – which is the substance that provides structural support to the body’s cells. New insights may contribute to the early detection of
