  • Experts from Universitätsklinikum Erlangen are involved in seven projects in the university medicine research network (Netzwerk der Universitätsmedizin, NUM), which is receiving a total of 150 million euros in funding from the BMBF.

  • A large part of the winter semester 2020/21 will be taught online. Although some face-to-face teaching will still take place, the upcoming semester will be a hybrid semester. A hybrid semester means that face-to-face teaching is offered to supplement online teaching. We will ensure that all degree programmes can still be studied.

  • The international project ‘Age(ing) as future’ at the Institute of Psychogerontology at FAU initiated a study within the context of the coronavirus pandemic in April. It investigates personal experiences, attitudes, worries and behaviour with respect to Covid-19 in Germany and Hong Kong.

  • Researchers from the German Centre for Immunotherapy (DZI) at Universitätsklinikum Erlangen have conducted tests to detect antibodies against the coronavirus, as diseases such as arthritis, inflammatory bowel disease or psoriasis are treated with medication that inhibits inflammation and modulates the immune response. A detailed corona antibody study has now been published in the scientific journal Nature Communications.
