The Department of Preclinical Imaging and Radiopharmacy is hosted within the Department of Radiology at the University Hospital Tübingen. Settled under one umbrella, our Department is an independent academic facility with more than ten years of experience in contractual research with pharmaceutical companies. In summary, within this framework both contract partners benefit from this close relationship to the clinic:

   1. Results from basic research can quickly be transferred to the clinical departments for clinical validation.

   2. A specific care unit for medical trial volunteers allows close supervision of study parameters.

   3. The laboratory is backed up by the University Hospital's professional administration.

Currently, our laboratory maintains collaborative research with more than eight major national and international pharmaceutical companies.

The chart depicts a typical study workflow containing clearly predefined milestones supported by project review meetings. An allocated project manager with experience in preclinical and translational research will be the designated contact person throughout the entire study. The project will be accompanied by regular teleconferences and exchange meetings to discuss results. This close-knit organization ensures successful project workflows and identifies problems at a very early stage.
