The new PMI website is still being developed, so we are getting started with a provisional one.
Clinical studies are necessary in order to be able to transfer research findings into hospital routines. We concentrate especially on proof-of-principle studies, which build on our previous work within the preceding Cluster of Excellence Inflammation at Interfaces.
The pivotal points for clinical research in the PMI Cluster are the two Comprehensive Centers for Inflammation Medicine (CCIM) in Kiel and Lübeck, two large interdisciplinary outpatient clinics for chronic inflammatory diseases. The CCIMs are responsible for characterising clinical cohorts, offer access to new treatments as well as translational diagnostic and therapeutic approaches developed in the Cluster.
