Welcome to the Chair of Epidemiology of the LMU Munich at UNIKA-T, Augsburg
The Chair of Epidemiology (Professor Dr. Jakob Linseisen) will establish a patient-oriented epidemiological research programme at the Klinikum Augsburg.
New findings in the fields of prevention, early detection and patient care will be put into practice quickly for the benefit of the population and the patients (translation approach).
Together with the population-based studies in the same region (KORA, NAKO), a unique epidemiological/medical "Research Region of Augsburg" (city of Augsburg and the two adjacent counties) will be developed, providing detailed information and bio-specimens from healthy subjects as well as from patients.
Research focus of the chair:
- Primary and secondary prevention of chronic diseases
- Health care research, based on patient cohorts and epidemiologic registries
- Experimental studies in high-risk groups and patients
