DFG establishes 14 new research units

The Grants Committee on General Research Funding of the Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft (DFG, German Research Foundation) has resolved to establish 14 new Research Units. In these Research Units scientists and academics work on special scientific questions in an interdisciplinary and interregional manner. With the funding in this programme, which is designed to last for six years, the DFG is pursuing the objective of promoting the collaboration of outstanding scientists and academics and, thereby, also creating new areas of research at the universities. The DFG will provide more than 20 million euros for funding the Research Units during the next three years. The Research Units in detail:

Life Sciences

A Research Unit at the University of Freiburg for "Statistical Modelling and Data Analysis in Clinical Epidemiology" will focus on the development of new methods of statistical analysis to improve the evaluation of clinical studies using existing patient data. This should result in new insights concerning the practical benefit of basic research in clinical medicine and help to achieve better prognoses in the future.

In Mainz a Research Unit is concentrating on the topic "Susceptibility Factors of Tumourigenesis", which will examine the susceptibility of organisms to develop tumours. The objective of the unit is to research the factors affecting susceptibility.

The transplantation of pig organs into humans is a realistic option for overcoming the worldwide shortage of organ donors. The DFG is now establishing an interregional Research Unit for "Xenotransplantation" at the following locations: University of Munich, Medical University of Hannover, Federal Research Institute for Agriculture in Mariensee, the Paul Ehrlich Institute in Langen and the Robert Koch Institute in Berlin. The Research Unit is researching new methods in genetic engineering and immunology to further the development of this technology, while also consider
