Staff at centres in Leipzig and Berlin will seek to develop tissue therapies. Both centres will receive BMBF funding of E15m ($19.4m) over the next four years. The minister also awarded prize money totalling E12.3m to 13 cost-effective medtech R&D projects that advance patient care, at what turned out to be the best attended Medica exhibition on record.
