Support for Individualized Diagnostic and Therapy
The Indivumed-Foundation aims to bolster the elementary factors necessary for the research and development of individualized cancer therapies. The Indivumed-Foundation is a special European-US initiative with the ultimate goal to cure cancer and, thereby solve one of the major health problems in the world. Its board comprises world-renowned representatives of basic science, translational research, focused philanthropy, entrepreneurship, and advocacy.
The initial capital of the Indivumed-Foundation has been provided by Indivumed GmbH based on donations in remembrance of Stefan Schorbach from Hamburg, Germany, who died of colon cancer.read more
The goal of the Indivumed-Foundation is to pave the way for individualized medicine and to make it available for all cancer patients.
Cancer research has made impressive progress during the last decades: dramatic improvements in molecular biology have led to a better understanding of what makes cancers “tick”; new anti-cancer agents are being developed at an unprecedented pace; new technologies allow us to measure the many disease variables quickly and accurately; and improvements in bioinformatics enable the thorough analysis of the resulting data sets.
We therefore know by now that there is no standard cancer treatment
– each cancer is different and needs to be treated individually!
This fundamental insight provides the basis for individualized medicine, the only way forward in the quest to cure cancer.
