There is more than one way to explore new therapies for patients. Here, we present and discuss examples from the MDC research portfolio that combine various strategies and technologies: from artificial intelligence (AI) and omics technologies to organoids and human tissue samples as well as animal models, the 3R principles and clinical research. And we present what our new preclinical research center PRC has to do with it.

Our experts report and answer your questions in the chat.
