Partner Sites

The DZHK consists of 32 partner institutions located at 7 partner sites. The members of the DZHK cover the entire spectrum of cardiovascular research at a high level, even by international comparison. The partner institutions include 14 university clinics and universities as well as centres of the Helmholtz Association, Leibniz and Max Planck Institutes and a federal departmental research institution.

In cardiovascular research, a national centre makes great sense: research has already achieved a great deal in recent years; for this reason, further progress can be expected in small steps. This requires ever larger studies, patient registers and biobanks. This can be implemented much better in a national centre than in many small individual institutions. At the DZHK's seven partner sites, more than 1,400 scientists are now uniting their expertise.
