On the occasion of World Cancer Day on February 4th, the foundation stone for the future of trauma research in Ulm has been laid. The new building, Multidimensional Trauma Sciences (MTW), will provide optimal conditions for internationally renowned researchers to study complex injuries and develop new therapeutic approaches. Trauma research in Ulm involves interdisciplinary cooperation between various fields such as trauma surgery, biochemistry, genetics, and psychiatry.
The research aims to gain a deeper understanding of the consequences of physical injuries, spanning from molecular and cellular levels to societal dimensions. The MTW building will house over 200 scientists equipped with state-of-the-art laboratories, imaging facilities, and a biobank. The proximity to the University Hospital Ulm, the Bundeswehr Hospital, and other scientific institutes will be advantageous for the research.
