The aim at MHH is to give patients the best treatment possible – a goal to which the School’s scientists, and its physicians engaged in research, are also dedicated. They have made MHH the leading university medical institution nationwide in research terms. And they also ensure that these activities are closely integrated with healthcare provision, enabling scientific findings to be applied rapidly and effectively for prevention, diagnostics and treatment.
Scientists at MHH are involved in numerous research alliances aimed at optimally advancing research, They include the REBIRTH Cluster of Excellence (focusing on regenerative medicine), Hearing4all (devoted to auditory research), the Integrated Research and Treatment Centre Transplantation (IFB-Tx), several Networks of Excellence (Kompetenznetze) and BREATH (the Hannover-based network of the German Center for Lung Research, DZL) and the German Centre for Infection Research (DZIF). The diverse research landscape also includes Collaborative Research Centres, Research Units and Research Training Groups, as well as hundreds of other projects.
For the purposes of pooling knowledge and integration, MHH collaborates with numerous partners, such as the Helmholtz Centre for Infection Research (HZI) In Braunschweig – both within TWINCORE and in the Centre for Individualized Infection Medicine (CCIM), At the Lower Saxony Centre for Biomedical Engineering, Implant Research and Development (NIFE), it is working together with Leibniz Universität Hannover and the University of Veterinary Medicine Hannover (TiHo) on developing cutting-edge implants. And, within the Clinical Research Center (CRC), MHH is working together with ITEM (a Fraunhofer institute) and the HZI to ensure optimum quality and safety for patients in clinical studies.
