Foundation Molecular Medicine
The „Foundation Molecular Medicine“ aims to build bridges between researchers, physicians and patients.
As implementation of this the foundation encourages science and research in the field of molecular medicine by promoting public relations, continuous medical education, and research assignements. A special concern is the support of research in the field of pain, orthopeadic diseases, dermatology and aging.
An improved communication between researchers and physicians through congresses and seminaries is sustained.
The foundation will furthermore inform affected people about new insights into molecular medicine. Molecular medicine is not an end in itself, but is supposed to improve health and quality of life of patients.
What is Molecular Medicine?
Molecular medicine facilitates a deeper understanding of disease due to its role as an interface of various disciplines such as molecular biology, biochemistry, physiology and humane medicine. An understanding of the cell-based processesof pathological changes in the body is the prerequesite for a developement of therapies that not only treat symptoms but the cause of disease.
Molecular medicine also plays a key role in the field of human aging.
