Welcome to the website of the CTH!


The integrated research and treatment center 'Center for Thrombosis and Haemostasis' (CTH) focuses on the research of the causes and disease mechanisms of thrombosis and blood coagulation diseases. The aim is to continuously improve the diagnosis and treatment of these diseases and to develop effective prophylactic measures. To address this, researchers from basic research and clinical research work closely together in an interdisciplinary manner. At the same time, patients with thrombosis/haemostasis diseases are treated at the CTH Health Care Center, which directly links research and patient treatment.

The CTH was founded in 2010 as part of the national programme "Integrated Research and Treatment Centers (IFB)" funded by the Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF). Within this funding period (2010-2021), the CTH has established itself as an internationally renowned research center in which excellent interdisciplinary cutting-edge research is combined with direct patient care in the field of thrombosis/haemostasis and attractive career paths have been established at the interface of science and clinical practice.


On behalf of the CTH, we warmly invite you to to find out about the various tasks and projects of the CTH on our homepage.
