Analogous to our clinical work, our research activities cover broad areas of nephrology and emphasize translational research. In this approach, ideas developed as part of patient care are used to generate hypotheses that are tested in experimental and then clinical trials and ultimately flow back into daily clinical work.

The Division of Nephrology is a cooperating partner in a large number of national and international clinical trials in the field of nephrology and can offer its patients state-of-the-art diagnostics and therapeutic approaches.

    Main research areas


    To consolidate our research, our division has established four research areas.
