The questions of health research can only be solved across disciplines and institutions with a long-term perspective. Important keywords such as prevention of common diseases, digitization of medicine, holistic medicine, individualized medicine and innovations for humans in scientific and media focus.
Bundling of research activities
The MSH is characterized by a wide range of research topics. In order to bundle these research activities and to work on important topics of the future, research clusters were formed. The research clusters cover scientific areas, topics and issues of current and medium-term relevance, approaches to various disciplines, existing potentials and focus on scientific issues that should be examined using a variety of discipline-specific methodologies. A research cluster thus requires the interaction of different disciplines and the parallel processing of different projects with the same core topic.
The research clusters are used to form thematic units that give access to health science and medical research questions.
The content-related, personal and structural consolidation of the disciplines should serve the goal of interdisciplinary research and interprofessional exchange, which should be considered using and interdisciplinary integration of discipline-specific methodologies.
