Science needs communication and cooperation
The DRFZ is part of numerous national and international research networks
Rheumatic and musculoskeletal diseases (RMDs) are a major challenge for many people in Germany and worldwide. To better understand the causes and sequels of inflammatory disesas, the DRFZ researchers cooperate with other scientists in regional, national and international research networks. In addition to knowledge exchange, these cooperations also offer access to technologies and large scale studies. Results can thus be obtained quicker.
The research networks are funded by various third party funding sources, such as the German Research Foundation (DFG), the Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF), the Leibniz Association, the European Commission or private foundations. Here, we present a selection of the research projects and networks at the DRFZ.
