Basis for 21st Century Medicine

Dr. Annette Schavan, the Federal Minister of Education and Research, visited the famous university town of Tübingen to gain a first-hand impression of the bioregion’s vast potentials in the fields of biotechnology and medical technology.

During a biotech lunch with approx. 45 representatives of the region including the rectors of the Universities of Stuttgart and Tübingen as well as representatives from several regional clinics and research institutes together with numerous specialised entrepreneurs, Dr. Schavan stressed the importance of continuous dialogue between researchers and politicians. She was pleased to note that “the STERN BioRegion has always concentrated on overcoming frontiers and boosting alliances”. Dr. Schavan stressed that sustainable decisions taken by politicians are always completely science-based.

Part of Dr. Schavan’s four-hour visit was dedicated to applications concerning on-going research projects in the region. BioRegio STERN Management GmbH is one of the winners in the first round of the “Health Region of the Future” contest run by the Federal Ministry of Education and Research, BMBF, and managed to convince with its concept for a User Centre for Regenerative Medicine in the Neckar-Alb Region, called REGiNA for short. The Federal Minister also visited the experimental theatre at the University of Tübingen and expressed herself convinced that regenerative medicine provides the basis for 21st century medicine. Dr. Schavan engaged in intensive and extensive dialogues with all present and promised to discuss topics which were raised, e.g. prevailing tax laws and how to make the job market more flexible, with her colleagues in Berlin.
