Welcome to the website of the CTH!


The Center for Thrombosis and Hemostasis Mainz (CTH) was established in 2010 as an Integrated Research and Treatment Center (IFB) funded by the German Ministry for Education and Research (BMBF). The CTH provides a unique interdisciplinary environment that facilitates basic research, innovative patient care and the development of new diagnostic approaches and therapies. The CTH fosters translational research from bedside-to-bench and vice versa in the field of thrombosis and hemostasis and career development of physician scientists and biomedical researchers.

On behalf of the CTH, we invite you to inform yourself about the different tasks and projects.
