Patients are the focal point of the research of our department. Our research fields include the diagnostics, prevention and treatment of the individual patient, with emphasis on tropical and infectious diseases including zoonoses, hiv/aids and tuberculosis.
Our expertise lies in descriptive and analytical pathology, laboratory medicine, pharmacology, medical decision sciences and clinical epidemiology. We also carry out clinical studies researching new means and medical technologies.
