German Center for Cardiovascular Research (DZHK)

The University Medical Center Mainz together with its Partners Goethe-University Frankfurt, Kerchoff-Clinic Bad Nauheim, and MPI Bad Nauheim make up one of seven german research centers with a cardiovascular focus.

The II. Medical Clinic and Polyclinic in Mainz work on two Projects within the DZHK, "MyoVascFN-Cohort Study" and "Mehrwert der Endothelfunktionsmessung für die Prognosestellung und Therapiesteuerung."

The DZHK research program is translationally focused und covers a broad spectrum from fundamental research to clinical research. The University Medical Center Mainz, one of the integral parts of the DZHK, has its pillars in translational and clinical research. Thanks to the Gutenberg Health Study, a detailed one of a kind population cohort with extensive clinical details and biomaterials and other clinical and epidemiological cohorts, there is much experience in the areas of logistics and carrying out large-scale projects. These can be used in the "Clinical Research" module.

German Consortium for Translational Cancer Research

Even though there has been significant progress in fundamental cancer reseach over the past few years, we are still far away from being able to help every patient. In the German Consortium for Translationale Cancer Research (DKTK), expertise from the Goethe-University Frankfurt, the University Medical Center Mainz, the Georg-Speyer-House, and the Northwest Hospital Frankfurt form a network with a total of 20 members who use the results of fundemental research to test new concepts for the prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of cancer.

The responsibility of the Mainz facilities is to bring together the experience from immunotherapy (from the C13 Cluster), the German Cancer Registry, German Pediatric Cancer Registry, and the epidemiological Cancer Registry of Rheinland-Palatinate into one regional Network. Together with the existing biomaterial bank, a clinical study network, and a cancer research institute, the DKTK is a step in the right direction towards meeting the increasing demand for individualized cancer therapy.
