In response to the first call for project proposals in 2007, the Center for Translational Molecular Medicine (CTMM) announced on April 1, 2008, that nine first-call projects would receive research funding amounting to a total of 150 million Euro.
On March 10, 2009, it announced that eight new project proposals, submitted in the fall of 2008 in response to the second call for proposals, will receive funding amounting to a total of almost another 100 million Euro. On August 4, 2009, it announced further funding of 15 million Euro for a research project on prostate cancer.
On February 15, 2010, CTMM funded 3 projects as a result of the Joint Call for Proposals, organized by the three top institutes BMM, CTMM and TI Pharma. The total allocated budget now amounts to 275 M€.
On September 29, 2011, CTMM launched the 22nd project: Translational Research IT (TraIT). The total allocated budget is now 302.7 M€.
All Dutch university medical centers, plus several universities, a broad spectrum of small and medium-sized enterprises, major industry leaders including Philips and DSM, and the Dutch Government are involved.
The funding is provided by the Dutch government, industry and academia. The research is focused firmly on the ‘translational’ aspects of molecular medicine so that results can be applied as quickly as possible to actual patient care.
