Research Profile

Scientists and clinicians of the Airway Research Center North (ARCN) focus on research on Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD) and Lung Cancer as well as Asthma and Allergy. This translational research consortium combines top-level expertise in basic research and medicine in the field of pulmonology in Schleswig-Holstein. As the biggest North German clinic specializing in lung and airway diseases with more than 13,000 patients treated per year, the LungenClinic Grosshansdorf is, together with the University Clinic Schleswig-Holstein (UKSH) and the Medical Clinic Borstel, responsible for clinical and patient-oriented research in the ARCN. The Research Center Borstel focuses on the investigation of infectious as well as non-infectious lung diseases and contributes to the success of ARCN basic research and the development of animal models. Additional partners are researchers at the University of Lübeck and the Christian-Albrechts-University Kiel. These scientists test asthma in animal models, analyze the epigenetic causes of lung diseases and are committed to developing novel imaging techniques. Cohort projects and clinical studies are conducted together with the Pulmonary Research Institute at the LungClinic Grosshansdorf. To strengthen the connection between clinical and basic research,the Biomaterialbank Nord has been set up as a joint central infrastructure. In the field of asthma, our physicians for pediatric and adult lung medicine work closely together for a better understanding of different disease courses. This crosslink between complementary partners in the ARCN is intended to support the collaborative implementation of translational research strategies.
