Centre for Protein Diagnostics (ProDi)

The Centre for Protein Diagnostics – ProDi for short – is located at the Bochum health campus. It forms the bridge between RUB, University Clinics, and the health care sector.

ProDi strenghtens the research network Protein Research Unit Ruhr within Europe – PURE. The PURE consortium develops innovative methods for the early diagnosis of cancer and neurodegenerative deseases such as Alzheimer’s. The total costs of the construction and the basic equipment totalling 48 million euros are borne by the federal government and the state of NRW. The construction phase began in November 2016. ProDi has opened June 3, 2019.
