Workshop Report, Development of New Diagnostics, Molecular Testing and Biomedical Imaging, Brussels, 4-5 July 2005



This report is an outcome from the workshop on "New diagnostics" that took place at the European Commission (DG- RTD, Directorate F, Unit F5), in Brussels on 4-5 July 2005 with independent experts from academia and industry.
The main aim of the workshop was to advise the Commission services on future research orientations on new diagnostics, which should be an important part of the area "Detection diagnosis and monitoring" in the domain "Biotechnology, generic tools and technologies for human health" of the forthcoming 7th Framework Programme (FP7) (2007-2013) for research and technological development.
Emphasis was given to two major aspects: Molecular and genetic testing, and Biomedical Imaging. Even though infrastructures are an important part of the needs in these areas at European level, they were largely left out of the discussions, essentially because they mainly fit in another area of FP7 and they deserve a meeting in themselves.
