MTW research building

In the emerging research building "Mutidimensional Trauma Sciences", precisely tailored research and communication areas for basic and clinical scientists will be created on almost 5000m2

By 2024, scientists from various disciplines – trauma surgeons, geneticists, psychologists and many more – will move in to find highly specialised biomedical laboratories, operation and intensive care facilities for small and large animals, a large animal imaging center as well as systems biology rooms for in silico analyses. Moreover, a clinical study center and a biobank will be provided for translational studies.
