According to the five main research areas of our Division in the field
- of chronic inflammatory bowel disease,
- of hepatology,
- the endoscopy,
- of psychosomatics and
- of gastroentrological intensive care medicine
the research activity of our division is dedicated to these 5 sub-areas of epidemiology, clinical research and disease or patient-oriented basic research. Ideally, basic research and clinical research complement each other in the respective sub-areas in the sense of a translational research approach with mutual stimulation (cross fertilization).
Pursuing both research directions within a division or working group has the fundamental advantage of being able to test new concepts quickly and, if necessary, also implement them, thus generating a faster increase in knowledge
