The HZI is Germany’s largest government research institution addressing the global challenges posed by infectious diseases. The results of fundamental research have to be transferred quickly and systematically into clinical applications which can come to the patient’s benefit. This also reduces substantial costs to society caused by infections. This brochure gives you an overview of the most important research approaches. [read more]
Infection research in particular faces major new challenges. These include poverty-related and chronic infectious diseases as well as previously unknown pathogens which are spreading rapidly . The antibiotic resistance of dangerous bacteria results in hospitals facing major challenges especially when performing vital surgery. The HIPS is taking up the challenge of discovering new active agents against resistant microbes.
This roadmap, HZI 2025, shows how the HZI, with its translational focus, will help to facilitate a faster and more targeted approach when it comes to fighting and preventing existing, emerging or recurring infectious diseases. Its aim is to keep pace with the rapidly evolving pathogens and thereby create the preconditions for a significant reduction of the disease burden caused by infections. [read more]
