Excellent. International. Curious.

The physicians and scientists of the Department of Medicine 3 research molecular and cellular mechanisms of rheumatic diseases and autoimmune diseases. Our goal is to better understand the causes and development of the diseases in order to develop new innovative diagnostic and treatment methods that alleviate the suffering of patients, improve their quality of life and open up long-term options for curing the diseases.

Our research laboratories are divided into working groups that focus on specific questions and mechanisms. In addition to basic research, which focuses on deciphering the function of cells, messenger substances and tissues, clinical trials apply the findings of basic research to rapidly benefit patients.
