team — The Centre for Advanced Laser Applications (CALA), a new facility devoted to laser-based research, will soon strengthen Munich’s position as a leading nexus of science and technology. The project was conceived as a collaborative venture between LMU Munich and the Technical University of Munich (TUM) in the context of the Munich-Centre for Advanced Photonics (MAP), a Cluster of Excellence. The groundwork on CALA’s future site on the Garching Campus has just got underway. In the new building, located at the North end of the Campus, physicists, medical specialists and biologists plan to develop uniquely innovative laser-based technologies and explore their potential applications. CALA’s primary objective is to identify new and cost-efficient approaches to the early diagnosis of cancers and other chronic illnesses, with a view to maximizing rates of cure.
