Mayor Olaf Scholz honors Hamburg as an international location for medical research
Indivumed celebrates 15 years of successful construction of the world's leading cancer database
Mayor Olaf Scholz emphasizes: "For many years, Hamburg has been promoting innovation, growth and employment in sustainable economic areas through an active cluster policy. And such a policy can only work on the basis of transparent and trusting strategic collaboration between partners. We are making good progress with this and I can now point to Indivumed as a very good example of what the Hamburg Biotech location stands for. The fact that you employ 100 people at the Hamburg site is one of these key successes. Indivumed is closely networked in Hamburg and engages with the cross-state cluster "Life Science North".
With the founding of IndivuTest GmbH, Indivumed has recently been equipped with a special diagnostic laboratory, which makes the latest findings of cancer research available to a personalized medicine oncologists and their patients. It is expected that at least a part of this innovative diagnostics will soon be taken over by the health insurance companies.
INDIVUMED an ISO certified global oncology research company based in Hamburg, Germany, has established the world’s leading Cancer Database and biobank, retaining unique patterns of biomolecules such as RNA, DNA, and proteins as they existed in the human body. This Cancer Database makes possible multi-omics capabilities that will allow for characterization of samples and data, such as whole genome gene expression analysis, expression analysis of cancer relevant proteins, expression analysis of cancer relevant phosphoproteins and bioinformatic solutions for integrating molecular, biological and clinical information.
