  1. 1. From ‘science in practise’ to ’science in business’ Jack A Schalken
  2. 2. AMBITION M2M concentrates all expertise and facilities needed for imaging (molecule-to-man) and translational innovation (bench-to-bed)A) Imaging from molecule-to-man B)Translational research – from bench-to-bedsmall molecule virus ribosome animal cell drosophila mouse Basic Pre- science & Proof of Clinical Globular protein bacterium plant cell mosquito homo clinical sapiens discovery concept Trials testing 10nm 100nm 10 μ 100 μ 1cm 1dm 1m Individualized Production 1 3 Small scale GMP- medicine & Chemical evidence production & synthesis based practice labeling 2 4 Imaging Preclinical imaging Clinical imaging (in vitro / in vivo) (volunteers, patients) Molecular (Sub)cellular Organ & body imaging imaging imaging
