Lung and Health

Lung diseases are one of the most serious health challenges worldwide and also one of the leading causes of death. At Helmholtz Zentrum München we want to gain new insights into the development of lung diseases and risk factors and, based on this, want to improve treatment and care for those affected.

Up-to-date knowledge about diagnosis, therapy and prevention is crucial for patients and their families to better manage the disease.

With this service we promote the exchange between science and society on lung diseases:
