German Centres for Health Research - DZG



The German Centres for Health Research (DZG) were founded to combat common diseases more effectively. These include cardiovascular diseases, lung diseases, cancer, neurodegenerative diseases, infectious diseases, diabetes and mental disorders. The DZG are funded by the Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF) and the participating federal states. 

The aim is to promote interdisciplinary cooperation between physicians and scientists from university and non-university institutions and to bring new research results more quickly to the patient. Efficient translation can thus improve the prevention, diagnosis and therapy of individual disease courses.

7 Centers, 43 Cities, 14 Federal states, 104 Partner Institutions – the DZG are: 

  • DKTK - German Cancer Consortium
  • DZD - German Centre for Diabetes Research
  • DZHK - German Centre for Cardiovascular Research
  • DZIF - German Centre for Infection Research
  • DZL - German Centre for Lung Research
  • DZNE - German Centre for Neurodegenerative Diseases
  • DZPG - German Center for Mental Health

Synergie - the joint magazine of the DZG

Under the motto "Research for Health" the joint magazine of the DZG is published twice a year. Each issue of "Synergie" is dedicated to a specific topic. The scientists provide readers with exciting insights into projects and successes in translational research. Here you will find all previous issues and articles.
