The research within the Department of Infectious Diseases aims at providing future patients with a better treatment. We think of every clinical situation being a research opportunity in order to increase our clinical quality. The entire clinical staff (doctors, nurses, service providers etc) are all obliged and encouraged to take part in the research proces. In particular we strive to give young employes a research carreer that can be combined with their clinical carreer. We count around 15 full time researchers and 20 part time researchers.
