At the Comprehensive Pneumology Center Munich (CPC-M), the Helmholtz Zentrum München – German Research Center for Environmental Health, Ludwig-Maximilians-University Munich with its University Hospital and the Asklepios Clinic Munich-Gauting have come together to form one of the largest centers in the world for translational research on chronic lung disease. The Helmholtz Zentrum München is a renowned expert in linking fundamental research and applied medical research. Ludwig-Maximilians-University is one of the top-level universities in the German Excellence Initiative. Its medical faculty is involved in high-level pulmonary research and medical care. The Asklepios Clinic Munich-Gauting is one of the leading hospitals in Germany that specializes in lung diseases. Research at CPC-M is focused on chronic lung diseases. CPC-M scientists integrate state-of-the-art techniques in molecular and cell biology, pharmacology, molecular pathology and clinical medicine in order to develop new diagnostic tools and therapies. In addition to the research program, CPC-M scientists are coordinators for the Disease Areas “Interstitial Lung Disease” and “Asthma and Allergy”. As an important link between clinical and basic research, the CPC-M also runs a research clinic. Here, clinicians and scientists work closely together to connect research results with therapeutic approaches. The CPC-M also operates the Lung Information Service, which is responsible for effective public and patient education and outreach about lung diseases.
