NFDI4Health - the National Research Data Infrastructure for Personal Health Data - deals with data generated in clinical trials, epidemiological and public health studies. The collection and analysis of these data on health and disease status and important factors influencing it are an essential component for the development of new therapies, comprehensive care approaches and preventive measures in a modern health care system. Although these data already meet high content quality standards, they ...

The aim of the project is to use methods and processes of the Medical Informatics Initiative (MII) to contribute to the detection of health risks in patients with polypharmacy. Polypharmacy occurs especially in elderly patients with multimorbidity. Polypharmacy associated with an increased risk for medication errors and drug-drug or drug-disease interactions, which either reduce or intensify the desired effect of individual active substances or lead to undesired adverse drug effects (ADE). In the ...

During 2004 and 2012 the german cancer aid supported the german glioma network (GGN). The GGN is a consortium where university hospitals with clinical focus in neuro-oncology, reference centers for neuroradiology, neuropathology, molecular diagnostics and biometry cooperate. Thanks to the long-term support it was possible to build a network of competence centers for the treatment of brain tumors in Germany wich is characterized by a interdisciplinary collaboration of all specialist disciplines ...

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 ...
