Epidemiologie

Epidemiologie erforscht Gesundheit und Krankheit auf der Bevölkerungsebene – die Infektionsepidemiologie beschäftigt sich mit übertragbaren Krankheiten. Ihre Werkzeuge und Methoden sind systematische Befragungen, klinische Untersuchungen und labordiagnostische Nachweise sowie statistische Analysen. So können Ursachen und Risikofaktoren für Infektionen identifiziert werden. Die Infektionsepidemiologie trägt zur Entwicklung von Präventionsmaßnahmen, ebenso wie zur Früherkennung und Therapie von Erkrankungen bei. Zudem überprüft sie die Wirksamkeit solcher Maßnahmen.

  • SORMAS - die Zukunft der Seuchenüberwachung

    Epidemiologen und IT-Experten aus Deutschland und Nigeria haben gemeinsam eine innovative App entwickelt, die helfen soll Epidemien wie Ebola oder Cholera zu bekämpfen - das Surveillance Outbreak Response Management and Analysis System (SORMAS). Unser Video zeigt, warum eine Anwendung wie SORMAS dringend benötigt wird und wie das einzigartige Konzept SORMAS so vielversprechend macht:

  • Was versteht man unter Infektionsepidemiologie?

    Was heißt "Infektionsepidemiologie"? Auf diese Frage antwortet Prof. Dr. Gérard Krause, Abteilungsleiter Epidemiologie am HZI in Braunschweig.

  • Mit der SORMAS-App gegen Epidemien in Nigeria

    Mit einem neuen mobilen Informationssystem bekämpfen deutsche Wissenschaftler vom Braunschweiger Helmholtz-Zentrum für Infektionsforschung (HZI) und nigerianische Forscher erstmals einen Affenpocken-Ausbruch in Nigeria. SORMAS – so der Name des Systems – steht für „Surveillance, Outbreak Response Management and Analysis System“. Wie das mobile Epidemie-Management-System funktioniert, das erklärt Prof. Gérard Krause vom HZI kurz und knapp in einer Minute.

  • Staphylococcus aureus – ein Leben in der Nase2000 zufällig ausgewählte Braunschweiger Bürger haben in diesem Juni Post vom HZI erhalten – mit der Bitte, an einer Studie über die Verbreitung von Staphylococcus aureus teilzunehmen. Varianten des Bakteriums sind unter dem Kürzel MRSA als Krankenhauskeime zu trauriger Berühmtheit gelangt. Unsere Wissenschaftler wollen nun erforschen, wie viele Gesunde – außerhalb von Krankenhäusern – mit diesem Keim Leben. Und sie suchen nach Risikofaktoren, die Staphylococcus aureus die Besiedlung des Menschen erleichtern. Begleiten Sie Frank Pessler und Jaishri Mehraj ein Stück in die Welt der Epidemiologie...
  • Proben und Fragebögen für die Infektionsforschung - Die Nationale Kohorte Diabetes mellitus, Krebs, Arterienverkalkung und diverse Infektionen sind Volkskrankheiten, über die wir viel zu wenig wissen. Mit der Nationalen Kohorte wollen Wissenschaftler diesen Krankheiten auf den Grund gehen und neue Strategien gegen sie entwickeln. Frank Pessler und Manas Akmatov nehmen die Infektionen ins Visier. Lassen Sie sich erklären, wie ihnen 225.000 Menschen dabei helfen sollen…
