The BMBF (Federal Ministry of Education and Research - Bundesministerium für Bildung und Forschung) supports basic and health research in many ways, e.g. by funding collaborative projects and by funding German Centers for Health Research (DZG).
The CTH is involved in research projects of the following collaborative projects and German Centers for Health Research:
'Future Clusters' of the BMBF aim to create innovations of the future from excellent basic research and through the regional bundling of different perspectives and competencies.
The cluster concept curATime, jointly developed by TRON gGmbH, Mainz, the University Medical Center Mainz (UM) and the German Research Center for Artificial Intelligence (DFKI), addresses the challenges of atherothrombosis-related cardiovascular diseases with the aim of developing tailored treatment and prevention concepts for cardiovascular diseases and their clinical application.
Research groups of the CTH are involved in the following projects within curATime:
The DZHK (German Center for Cardiovascular Research - Deutsches Zentrum für Herz- und Kreislaufforschung e.V.) is one of a total of six German Centers for Health Research dedicated to research into common diseases and was founded on the initiative of the BMBF .
The DZHK aims to develop therapies and diagnostic procedures for cardiovascular diseases. To this end, results from basic research are to be applied quickly and in a targeted manner. To this end, the DZHK combines outstanding basic research and clinical research from seven locations in Germany, creating synergies and accelerating the process of translation.
The CTH has been continuously involved in research projects of the DZHK since its foundation:
The DKTK (German Cancer Consortium - Deutsches Konsortium für translationale Krebsforschung) is also one of a total of six German Centers for Health Research dedicated to research into common diseases and was founded on the initiative of the BMBF.
The DKTK aims to develop new strategies for personalized oncology and bring them into clinical application. To this end, the DKTK promotes interdisciplinary research topics at the interface between basic research and clinical practice, as well as clinical trials of innovative therapeutic and diagnostic methods.
Research groups and individuals of the CTH have been involved in research projects of the DZHK since its foundation.
