The Center for Clinical Studies Borstel has three main focuses: translational research, diagnostic or biomolecular investigations on clinical biomaterials and trials according to German Medicine Act (Arzneimittelgesetz, AMG) on therapeutic compounds (phases I - IV). On the on hand, the laboratory infrastructure in Borstel facilitates rapid access to clinical and research laboratories on the campus. On the other hand, our close proximity to the hospital wards and the outpatient department of the “Medizinische Klinik” allows easy recruitment of ambulatory and bed-bound patients for clinical research.

Based on this closely woven connection between basic research, laboratories and patient management, we can offer a wide spectrum of resources and options that can be used for scientific purposes. More details about our facilities and staff can be found here. Subsequently, we offer a wide range of services: planning, layout and conduct of Investigator Initiated Trials, conceptual design of study protocols, consultant services for sponsors, CRO / SMO services for sponsors of industry driven projects, etc. Please visit the following sites for further details.
