Deutsches Zentrum für Herz-Kreislauf-Forschung e.V. (DZHK)/ Deutsche Zentren der Gesundheitsforschung (DZG)

The DZHK was established in 2012 on the initiative of the Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF) and is the biggest Centre for Cardiovascular Diseases in Germany. To achieve this, we aim to rapidly and efficiently transfer results from basic research into clinical practice. This is why the DZHK brings together outstanding basic and clinical researchers from seven partner sites in Germany to develop new therapies and diagnostic procedures for cardiovascular diseases.

In addition to the DZHK, there are five more German Centres for Health Research (DZG). The goal of the DZG is to combat the widespread diseases – such as cancer, cardiovascular, metabolic, infectious, pulmonary or neurodegenerative diseases – more effectively. The centers bring together non-university research and university partner institutions from all over Germany to ensure that research results reach medical care and thus patients more quickly.
