Sektion für Molekulare Psychosomatik

Successful and world-renowned biomedical science has to come up with innovative treatment strategies for patients or at least with the basics needed for developing those strategies in a next step. This kind of science is often, when not always, characterized by interdisciplinary team-work involving several laboratories from quite diverse areas of expertise, employing a broad spectrum of techniques and tools in order to tackle well-defined scientific questions and hypotheses.
