Prof. Christian Plank (Klinikum rechts der Isar, Technische Universität München),
PD Dr. Carsten Rudolph (Dr. von Haunersches Kinderspital, LMU Munich) and
Dr. Ulrich Rant (Walter-Schottky Institut, TUM).

Christian Plank and Carsten Rudolph work together on the implementation of a new kind of drugs, synthetic RNA molecules, in regenerative medicine. Their award includes a 3,6 million Euro endowment for a period of three years.

Ulrich Rant
and his team have developed a new kind of diagnosis biochip. Fixed DNA molecules "catch" the sought for proteins and can than be detected by moving more slowly (see the movie). The funding of GO-Bio will help to bring this new technology ready for market.
