Excellence in clinical trials

We are an international, interdisciplinary clinical research and teaching institution with a strong focus on planning, conducting and evaluating clinical trials. Research and education are strongly linked to each other. We work with both healthy volunteers and patients in a wide variety of study settings.

The studies include all phases of clinical research, from the first application in humans to pivotal registration studies. Accurate monitoring and professional medical care of study participants is particularly important to us. Our work is consistently guided by the highest ethical, scientific and legal standards.

Interdisciplinary, international research

In focus: the human being. With our work, we make a significant contribution to drug safety. Research is an integral part of our daily work - in teaching just as much as in our collaborations with industry and business or our international partners from the academic environment. Our specialised working groups are involved in nationally and internationally funded research projects.
