Research areas:

* Development of new imaging biomarkers (radiopharmaceuticals) for imaging diagnostics
* Validation of the new imaging biomarkers: in particular with experimental translational methods for translation into clinical applications
* Open Innovation: Involving patients in research at eye level (PPIE)

"Personalized medicine fundamentally benefits from the availability of qualified diagnostic methods. Imaging biomarkers (radiopharmaceuticals) make a contribution to therapy selection, therapy control and prognosis for patients. I would like to make a contribution by providing new tools for this personalized diagnostics by combining different methods for improving personalized medicine at our location.

In addition, it is also necessary not to forget the needs of those affected in this personalized medicine, because only if we understand what the challenges, fears or solutions of those affected are can we conduct targeted research for and with them. Personalized medicine must not stop at the biomarkers, but only where we succeed in using our approach to achieve a lasting positive influence on the quality of life of those affected."
