From the idea to clinical proof of concept

The Unit for Translational and Clinical Projects (TKP) supports translational research approaches at the Center. These are developed in cooperation with clinical partners by the three Translational Research Centers (Diabetes Study Center, Comprehensive Pneumology Center, Munich Allergy Research Center), the Clinical Cooperation Units and the institutes

By concentrating and advancing knowledge, technologies and partnerships, the complex demands of clinical development can be tackled in a competent and effective manner. TKP cooperates closely with the Innovation Management Unit (INNO) for preparing the transfer of developmental projects to the clinical phase and for support concerning patent and exploitation issues.


A major focus of the TKP portfolio is the development of stratified and personalized strategies for prevention, diagnosis and treatment. It underlines and specifies the performance of the Center in this research area.
