The network of university medicine (NUM) on COVID-19 focuses on the medical care of patients. The CODEX project is one of 13 NUM projects funded by the Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF) with a total of 150 million euros to combat the pandemic.
In the CODEX project, the Institute for Medical Informatics, in cooperation with the Institute for Hygiene at the University of Münster, is involved in setting up a nationwide, data protection-compliant infrastructure for the storage of Covid-19 research data sets. In this research data platform, for example, laboratory data can be made available to researchers in pseudonymised form using secure and transparent procedures. The platform will thus become a central source of information for various research projects dealing with the development of better treatment approaches for Covid-19.
