Research Units and Clinical Research Units

Research Units and Clinical Research Units at FAU

Research Units (RU) are groups of several researchers based at one or more locations. They often contribute to establishing new areas of research. The aim of Clinical Research Units (CRU) is to promote research groups involved in disease or patient-orientated (translational) clinical research and set up permanent research groups in clinical facilities. There are currently a total of 17 Research Units and Clinical Research Units at FAU. FAU is the coordinating university for six of these units.
