The operational units of the LIH (CPMO, CIEC, CCMS, IBBL) and its collaborative platforms (LCTR, DMSP, LuxGen, RPP) have been consolidated in the Translational Medicine Operations Hub (TMOH), in order to integrate and optimise their accessibility, workflows and project/portfolio oversight.

The new department ensures a full support to clinical research from the planning of the clinical research studies to their execution and closure via the collection, processing, storage and analysis of high-quality biological samples and structured clinical data.

The central entry point for new projects is the CPMO, which will guide researchers and their projects through the governance and approval process, as well as plan and track project execution.

The TMOH facilitates intra-institutional research, as well as transversal translational projects of “Research Luxembourg” and collaborations with external partners.

These include publicly funded Research Projects like LITMUS, NCER-PD and CLINNOVA, as well as collaborations with industry partners.
