MEDICAL RESEARCH

Scientists within the Faculty of Medicine actively combine clinical research with strong interdisciplinary basic research. Their goals are to understand the human body and the progression of diseases, and ultimately to develop new diagnostic methods as well as individualized therapeutic options. Researchers collaborate with colleagues across the borders of disciplines, nationalities and cultures. Combined expertise and diversified approaches promote scientific creativity that results in medical innovations.

When physicians conduct research in parallel to their everyday clinical work, both research and patient care benefit. For this reason, the Faculty of Medicine at the University of Münster supports physicians who wish to combine their clinical career with science; this allows them the freedom to conduct research as well as fulfill their clinical responsibilities.
