About our research
Research into microorganisms and their mechanisms of long-term colonisation of people is central to the “Chronic Infections and their Control” Collaborative Research Centre. This interdisciplinary research consortium is financed by the German Research Foundation and brings together scientists and medical doctors from the Hannover Medical School, the Twincore GmbH and the Helmholtz Centre for Infection Research in Braunschweig. The goal of the planned research is to build a basis for the development of new therapies and vaccinations against infectious diseases. The Collaborative Research Centre is divided into three research areas, interlinked by the projects.
