The aim of the Head and Neck Group within the Leipzig Research Center for Civilization Diseases (LIFE) is to facilitate improvements in the treatment and care of head and neck cancer patients through insights from molecular studies.
The Head and Neck Group within the Leipzig Research Center for Civilization Diseases (LIFE) investigates the molecular mechanisms and the diagnostic and prognostic factors of head and neck cancer. For this purpose, we collected phenotypic information from about 300 ...
LIFE Child wants to find out how environmental factors and lifestyles can affect the health of children and adolescents. The aim of the study is to examine civilization diseases such as allergies, obesity, diabetes, cardiovascular diseases in more detail. Furthermore, the study also focuses on healthy mental and physical development from the infant to the young adult. The team of the LIFE Child study around Prof. Dr. med. Wieland Kiess would like to examine and question about 5,000 subjects aged ...
The Leipzig Health Atlas (LHA) is an alliance of medical ontologists, medical systems biologists and clinical trials groups to design and implement a multi-functional and quality-assured atlas. It provides models, data and metadata on specific use cases from medical research fields in which our team has scientific and clinical expertise.

Medical data routinely generated in everyday clinical practice is processed and made available to medical research in a standardized form. Patients benefit from reliable research results, more precise diagnoses and better treatments. In order to link data from care and research, the participating university hospitals in Aachen, Bonn, Essen, Halle, Hamburg, Jena and Leipzig have established sustainable Data Integration Centers. The network partners Ruhr University Bochum, the Düsseldorf University ...

The LIFE-Heart study recruited 7,000 patients with suspected coronary heart disease, manifest heart disease or myocardial infarction. All patients received coronary angiography so that the vascular status in the heart is precisely known. In principle, this examination is not feasible in population-related studies. In addition, the patients were thoroughly examined with regard to the general vascular status and the health of the cardiovascular system. Extensive environmental factors were recorded. ...
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.
This population-based study examined 10,000 participants randomly selected from the Leipzig population (2011 to 2014). A follow-up is to be carried out from 2017 - 2020. The study mainly included people aged between 40 and 79. All participants underwent a 6-hour study program and people over 60 years of age were invited two more times to in-depth study of cognition and depression and the brain (MRI, EEG). Extensive measurements of genome, metabolome and transcriptome are available. The LIFE-ADULT ...
Analysis of the humoral response against HLA alloantigens is performed using museal methods. With the use of AI we aim to predict deleterious antibody production avoiding allograft deterioration and graft loss.

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 ...

In the German National Research Data Infrastructure (NFDI), valuable data from science and research are systematically accessed, networked and made usable in a sustainable and qualitative manner for the entire German science system. Up to now, they have mostly been available on a decentralised, project-related or temporary basis. The NFDI aims to create a permanent digital repository of knowledge as an indispensable prerequisite for new research questions, findings and innovations. Relevant data ...

The medical informatics initiative was created to close the gap between research and healthcare. All of Germany’s university hospitals have joined forces with research institutions, businesses, health insurers, and patient advocacy groups to create a framework that harnesses research findings to the direct benefit of patients. The German Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF) is investing around 160 million euros in the programme through 2021. The digitisation of medicine is creating ...
