Core Research Topics

Clinical research

Our clinical projects focus on three medical areas:

  • Vascular and Interventional Neuroradiology
  • Neurodegeneration
  • Neurooncology

Basic research

Our scientists apply advanced neuroimaging methods to a vast array of research questions and develop new MR methods.

  • Multimodal Imaging and Neurostimulation
  • MR Physics

Current research projects

Neuroimaging methods can be applied to a wide range of research questions. Thus, our research projects cover diverse topics such as imaging for stroke, trauma, tumors, migraine, aging, and neuroimmunology. We also focus on CT imaging, and Head & Neck imaging. Additionally, our scientists develop new methods and optimize existing technologies for our own projects and our research partners.

PD Dr. phil. Lars Michels (Head of Basic Research) coordinates the research projects at our clinic and is your contact point for research collaborations.

We also conduct clinical studies

We regularly partner with pharmaceutical and medical technology companies to conduct clinical studies. This allows us to test the newest drugs and innovative methods. Meanwhile, our team of experienced doctors and technical assistants lend our partners their experience to transfer research findings from the lab to the patient.

We are open to new collaborations and questions regarding a running clinical study.
