Collaborative Research Centers with leadership at the UKE

Collaborative Research Centers funded by the German Research Foundation (DFG) are joint projects, in which scientists work together over the boundaries of their respective disciplines, faculties and universities in addition to excellent scientific research programs .

The University Medical Center Hamburg-Eppendorf (UKE) is currently conducting research in four different collaborative research centers (SFBs).
