Ulm University: a leading player in trauma research

Trauma Research                Psychotraumatology

Ulm University is the leading German institution in this young discipline and highly regarded for its pioneer work both on a national and international level. Ulm-based trauma research focuses on exploration and treatment of physical trauma as it occurs, for example, in severe traffic and work accidents. Psychological trauma - as experienced by war refugees, victims of violence or abused children - is also an important part of the scientific and therapeutic work in Ulm. Scientists and physicians from University, University Hospital and strong medical partner institutions collaborate very closely in this. The transdisciplinary Center for Trauma Research plays a central role with its scientific focus on the interrelation of physical and psychological trauma.
