German-Australian iCAIR project launched by Fraunhofer
Integrated into the seminar agenda, this year’s “Models of Lung Disease” included a very special highlight: the official launch of the German-Australian project iCAIR. The aim of this project is to develop new anti-infective drugs.
Margalit Levin of the Australian embassy in Berlin said, “The iCAIR project joins a growing list of outstanding science, innovation and research projects between Germany and Australia, with the potential for significant global impact. This collaboration between Fraunhofer ITEM, Hannover Medical School and Griffith University’s Institute for Glycomics is proving once again that distance is no longer a barrier when pursuing research excellence – and will now work together to tackle the global imperative of developing new anti-infective therapies.”
