To researchers working in the field of inflammatory diseases, Prof. Dr. Georg Schett is a very familiar name. For his outstanding scientific achievements, Schett, a physician at FAU, has now been awarded the Gottfried Wilhelm Leibniz Prize by the German Research Foundation (DFG), which is one of the most important prizes for research in Germany. The prize is worth up to 2.5 million euros, which Georg Schett can use for his research in the coming years.

At least one in ten people who contract COVID-19 still struggle with persistent or new complaints weeks or months after contracting the virus. Extreme fatigue after strenuous activity, listlessness, shortness of breath, concentration difficulties and memory problems, anxiety and feelings of depression are only some of the possible symptoms of post-COVID syndrome. In order to offer patients suffering from severe and complex forms of the disease a central port of call, Universitätsklinikum Erlangen has now opened an interdisciplinary Post-COVID Center.
