About us:

At the Chair of Experimental Physics – Laser Physics of the Ludwig Maximilian’s Universität (LMU) München, the Max-Planck-Institute of Quantum Optics (MPQ) and the Center for Molecular Fingerprinting (CMF) in Hungary, we undertake a large-scale inter-disciplinary research effort to evaluate the potential of LMU’s and MPQ’s proprietary electric-field molecular fingerprinting (EMF) technique as a new approach for population health monitoring and preventive medicine. Capitalizing on our longitudinal study,  the Health for Hungary – Hungary for Health (H4H) Program, we pursue – in cooperation with the Helmholtz Zentrum München, the Max-Planck-Institute of Biochemistry, The Bavarian NMR Center, and the Technische Universität München – a large-scale populational longitudinal study with 100 thousand participants for developing a Screening Algorithm for the early detection of major non-communicable diseases (lung cancer, cardiovascular, metabolic and respiratory disorders) by means of regular blood tests based on EMF, MS-based proteomics and NMR-based metabolomics. The goal is to establish the cornerstone of future preventive medicine. The leaders of the endeavor are Dr. Mihaela Zigman and Prof. Ferenc Krausz (Nobel Prize in Physics 2023).
