Institute for Inflammation Medicine

Welcome to our homepage.

When we founded our institute in 2013, we set ourselves an important goal. Our patients should receive comprehensive and high-quality medical care. Our interdisciplinary team of more than 20 physicians, scientists, medical assistants and technical assistants would like to treat people with serious chronic inflammatory diseases according to the latest scientific knowledge and provide competent interdisciplinary care. In addition, we would like to expand the treatment options through clinical research activities.

The Institute of Inflammation Medicine as a cross-campus department of the University Medical Center Schleswig-Holstein is part of the Cluster of Excellence "Inflammation at Interfaces", a research cluster of the universities of Kiel and Lübeck. Our institute offers a platform for interdisciplinary collaboration, medical teaching and clinical research.

Interdisciplinary cooperation is very important for the success of therapy in multiple disease patterns. In addition to interdisciplinary case conferences and consultation hours, we also benefit from a broad network in the region and beyond. This not only helps us to optimize therapies, but also drives our research approaches forward.
