The three Central Hessian universities have many areas of intersection in their subjects and, at the same time, owing to the difference in scientific profiles and to the strategy of creating professorships to be distinct but to intermesh with each other at the three institutions, their specialities are complementary, lending themselves to collaboration. In many fields, joint research activities have therefore been an established practice for many years. Cross-university cooperation is now funnelling into the Campus Research Foci. These contain thematically focused joint research clusters which pursue common scientific goals, are developing strategically and are successful in scientific competition.

Lung and Heart
To date, the available therapies for most respiratory and heart diseases only relieve disease symptoms, but do not cure the disease itself. It is here that scientists from the Research Campus Focus “Lung and Heart” come into play, investigating the causes and mechanisms of disease in order to develop new approaches for prevention, diagnosis and therapy.

Security - Conflict - Order
As regions of conflict, Eastern Europe and the Near and Middle East are in the focus of global interest and global politics. Not only are the relations between the two regions and Western Europe changing and intensifying dramatically, producing tensions and conflict, but also developments in the relationship of the Near and Middle East with Eastern Europe are dynamic and ever more critical.
