Cluster of Excellence Precision Medicine in Chronic Inflammation (PMI)

About the Cluster

More and more people in industrial nations are suffering from chronic inflammatory diseases such as Crohn’s disease, psoriasis, diabetes and rheumatism. In the Cluster of Excellence “Precision Medicine in Chronic Inflammation” (PMI), scientists from various medical disciplines and fundamental research are working together on an interdisciplinary basis to significantly improve the diagnosis, treatment and prevention of these diseases. Their vision is to achieve complete control over the diseases – at every stage and as early as possible.
