LIFE Child wants to find out how environmental factors and lifestyles can affect the health of children and adolescents. The aim of the study is to examine civilization diseases such as allergies, obesity, diabetes, cardiovascular diseases in more detail. Furthermore, the study also focuses on healthy mental and physical development from the infant to the young adult. The team of the LIFE Child study around Prof. Dr. med. Wieland Kiess would like to examine and question about 5,000 subjects aged ...
The LIFE-Heart study recruited 7,000 patients with suspected coronary heart disease, manifest heart disease or myocardial infarction. All patients received coronary angiography so that the vascular status in the heart is precisely known. In principle, this examination is not feasible in population-related studies. In addition, the patients were thoroughly examined with regard to the general vascular status and the health of the cardiovascular system. Extensive environmental factors were recorded. ...
The aim of the Head and Neck Group within the Leipzig Research Center for Civilization Diseases (LIFE) is to facilitate improvements in the treatment and care of head and neck cancer patients through insights from molecular studies.
The Head and Neck Group within the Leipzig Research Center for Civilization Diseases (LIFE) investigates the molecular mechanisms and the diagnostic and prognostic factors of head and neck cancer. For this purpose, we collected phenotypic information from about 300 ...
Goal of the Leipzig Research Center for Civilization Diseases (LIFE) is the investigation of civilization diseases like depression, diabetes, allergies or cardiovascular diseases. For this purpose we collect as much data as possible regarding health and living conditions of the population in Leipzig and provide these data for scientists of the University of Leipzig and other research institutions.
This population-based study examined 10,000 participants randomly selected from the Leipzig population (2011 to 2014). A follow-up is to be carried out from 2017 - 2020. The study mainly included people aged between 40 and 79. All participants underwent a 6-hour study program and people over 60 years of age were invited two more times to in-depth study of cognition and depression and the brain (MRI, EEG). Extensive measurements of genome, metabolome and transcriptome are available. The LIFE-ADULT ...

The aim of this project is to validate and improve an in vitro test system developed in a previous project for the prediction of hepatotoxicity induced by chemical substances and drugs. For this purpose, the test system will be supplemented with immunological cells in order to be able to detect idiosyncratic reactions. In the subproject of the working group of Prof. Daniel Seehofer and Dr. Georg Damm, primary liver cells will be provided and the in vitro model will be improved by Kupffer cells.
Aim of the project group "Management of health information systems" is to contribute to a better health care by developing new methods and tools to support the information management.
The project is also known as: MIG - Management von Informationssystemen im Gesundheitswesen

NFDI4Health - the National Research Data Infrastructure for Personal Health Data - deals with data generated in clinical trials, epidemiological and public health studies. The collection and analysis of these data on health and disease status and important factors influencing it are an essential component for the development of new therapies, comprehensive care approaches and preventive measures in a modern health care system. Although these data already meet high content quality standards, they ...

The medical informatics initiative was created to close the gap between research and healthcare. All of Germany’s university hospitals have joined forces with research institutions, businesses, health insurers, and patient advocacy groups to create a framework that harnesses research findings to the direct benefit of patients. The German Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF) is investing around 160 million euros in the programme through 2021. The digitisation of medicine is creating ...
