Goal of the Leipzig Research Center for Civilization Diseases (LIFE) is the investigation of civilization diseases like depression, diabetes, allergies or cardiovascular diseases. For this purpose we collect as much data as possible regarding health and living conditions of the population in Leipzig and provide these data for scientists of the University of Leipzig and other research institutions.
The publication of research results is part of good scientific practice and is increasingly ex-pected and demanded. The FAIR data principles of data sharing are an important guideline - even if medical data sharing makes it necessary to define access restrictions.
The Leipzig Health Atlas (LHA) offers a platform for presentation and exchange of publications, (bio-) medical data, models and software tools from the field of health research. The LHA is based on the FAIR Data Principles (Findable, Accessible, Interoperable, Reusable). Currently, more than 18 research consortia contribute data from the domains lymphoma, glioma, sepsis, hereditary colorectal and breast cancer, and others. Target groups are clinicians, epidemiologists, molecular geneticists, human ...

Within the framework of the funding measure "i:DSem - Integrative Data Semantics in Systems Medicine", the Federal Ministry of Education and Research supports research projects that take up this approach. Interdisciplinary research projects are to create the basis so that in the future, for example, the attending physician will have application-oriented computer programmes at his or her disposal that will enable him or her to access all clinically relevant data. This should significantly support ...
