Presidential Entrepreneurship Award Verleihung 2019

This year, the Presidential Entrepreneurship Awardof the Technical University of Munich (TUM) goes to Scintomics GmbH. The company develops, manufactures and markets innovative radiopharmaceutical and nuclear medicine technologies for tumor diagnostics and therapy.

Scintomics has been marketing and installing fully automated production systems for established radiopharmaceuticals in clinical facilities worldwide since 2006. In recent years, the company has also made increasing inroads into the pharmaceutical sector. Scintomics achieves this with highly innovative radio diagnostics and therapeutics, most of which were developed and patented at the TUM. Scintomics thus accompanies the entire process, from production to approval of new radiopharmaceuticals. The technical prerequisites of the interdisciplinary entrepreneurial approach also originated at the TUM: Founder Prof. Hans-Jürgen Wester holds the Chair of Pharmaceutical Radiochemistry at the TUM, while Managing Director Saskia Kropf studied mechanical engeneering at the TUM.
