Science and Society: Our Vision

How do we stay healthy? What is the connection between health, environment and our lifestyle? And how can we prevent, treat or even cure common chronic diseases such as diabetes, allergies or lung diseases? At Helmholtz Zentrum München we are conducting intensive research to find answers to these and many other questions - because our vision is a healthier society.

But research alone is not enough. For a healthier society, the knowledge and information gained have to reach the people it affects. We therefore actively involve the general public. Through sharing qualified information and knowledge, we want people to better understand the factors that make the difference between health and disease.
