These research fields of the Faculty of Medicine address the challenges of university medicine in terms of content. They are characterised by a large number of research collaborations, competitive funding, strengths in clinical care and state-of-the-art facilities.
The Faculty of Medicine at Heinrich Heine University Düsseldorf focuses on a new balance between competition and cooperation among its priority research fields.
Following the concept of "coopetition" - the pairing of cooperation and competition - it promotes the collaboration of these research fields. This creates intersections in terms of content that enable innovation and knowledge transfer across disciplinary boundaries.
A modern research infrastructure supports this process of profile building at the University Medical Centre Düsseldorf.
