Dr. Stein/M&P has guided us through the funding process from the very beginning - starting with the selection of the right program, the detailed design of the application and the communication with the funding agencies in case of queries. In our opinion, the professional competence and experience made a decisive contribution to the success of the application

Stefan UeltzhöfferManaging Director

M&P prepared a grant application for us for an innovative e-health solution. All steps in the multi-stage application process (outline, pitch, application) were perfectly prepared and the consortium partners were very well involved at all times. With this support, we were ultimately successful!

Christian (Fred) HieronimiOncare

M&P in the form of Philipp has always had my back free since the first day of working together, so that I could fully exploit my strengths. I always like to think back on the three years we spent together


Dr. Stein has been with us throughout the entire process, from the idea, concept, program selection, development of the outline and project application to communication with the project management agency. Thanks to this support, we are now able to work with additional personnel on an innovative project with a strong partner from the middle class.

Prof. Dr. Ralf RinglerOTH

I met Jörg in the board when I joined OncoRadiomics in May 2019. Since then it has been a pleasure working with him. Being well prepared for meetings and by using his experience he is asking the right questions, providing both sufficient pushback and valuable feedback. The added value he brought and his attitude guaranteed that we were able to redefine the future of the company.


With Frank/M&P we have an industry experienced business angel on board, who fits very well to us both professionally and personally.
