CPC-M Research Profile


At the Comprehensive Pneumology Center Munich (CPC-M), the Helmholtz Zentrum München – German Research Center for Environmental Health, Ludwig Maximilian University Munich with its University Hospital and the Asklepios Clinic Munich-Gauting come together to form one of the largest centers for translational research on chronic lung disease world-wide. The Helmholtz Zentrum München is a renowned expert in bridging fundamental experimental research and applied medical research with a strong focus on translational medicine in the area of lung disease. Ludwig Maximilian University is one of the top level universities in the German Excellence Initiative and its medical faculty is involved in high level pulmonary research and medical care. The Asklepios Clinic München-Gauting is one of the leading hospitals in Germany that specializes in lung diseases.


Research at CPC-M is focused on chronic lung diseases. CPC-M scientists integrate state-of-the-art techniques in molecular and (stem) cell biology, pharmacology, molecular pathology and clinical medicine in order to develop new diagnostic tools and therapies for chronic lung diseases. CPC-M scientists are coordinators for the Disease Areas “Diffuse parenchymal Lung Disease” and “Asthma and Allergy”.


As an important link between clinical and experimental research the CPC-M founded the CPC outpatient unit where patients with lung disease can participate in scientific and clinical studies. Experimental and Clinical Scientist work also spatially together to interlink scientific results and therapeutic approaches.


In addition to its research program the CPC-M coordinates the German-French Lung School together with the CPC Research School and Graduate Program “Lung Biology and Disease”. The CPC-M also operates the Lung Information Service (www.lungeninformationsdienst.de) which is responsible for effective public and patient education and outreach about lung diseases.
