Is Therese Neumann being considered for sainthood?

I read a book about the mystic and stigmatist, Therese Neumann, a while back though I cannot recall all the details. Is she being considered for sainthood?

Yes, the current head of the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith, Cardinal Gerhard Muller, opened an investigation of sanctity for Therese Neumann in 2005 when he was the Bishop of Regensburg.
