The Translation Center was founded in 2016 under the umbrella of the Center for Translational & Clinical Research (CTC-A) to support new university developments.
Medical progress increasingly depends on the findings and developments in the natural and engineering sciences. Through the networking of all three disciplines, the profile area Medicine and Technology at RWTH Aachen University therefore actively aims at the generation of new diagnostic and therapeutic procedures.
The aim of the Translation Centre is to help the research scientists at RWTH Aachen University to transfer their developments into clinical application. In the context of early project support, we help to identify product-specific challenges in advance and to develop measures for risk minimization. In addition, we provide support particularly at the critical points of the development processes, from the preclinical evaluation of the products to phase I or "first in patient" studies at the RWTH Aachen University Hospital.
