Research clusters at MSH

The prospect of health research is becoming increasingly complex and is growing in importance with the challenges of the 21st century. The key questions of health research can only be acted upon through trans- and cross-disciplinary long-term approaches. Key words such as prevention of chronic diseases, digitalization of medicine, holistic medical approaches, individual medicine and innovation for human beings come to the academic and medial fore.

Grouping of research activities

MSH is characterized by a comprehensive width of research topics. To group these research activities and to address key topics of the future, we created research clusters. Research clusters consist of scientific areas, topics and questions of recent and intermediate relevance, access to different disciplines and existing potential. They focus on answering academic research questions that are looked at from different discipline-specific methods. As such, a research cluster requires the cooperation of different disciplines and the concomitant processing of different projects with the same topic.

Research clusters help us create thematic units that give access to health- and medical research questions. The content-related, personnel and structural junction of disciplines underpins the interdisciplinary research approaches and inter-professional exchange.
