A particular strength of the Faculty of Medicine lies in translational research. It brings together scientists from the fields of fundamental research and the clinic.

The Faculty has purposefully created scientific networks in order to facilitate synergies: These include the Cologne Cluster of Excellence for Cellular Stress Responses in Aging-Associated Diseases (CECAD), the Center for Molecular Medicine (ZMMK) and the Clinical Trials Centre Cologne (ZKS Köln), which specializes in the planning and execution of clinical research projects.

University and non-university institutions are located in the immediate proximity and cooperate closely with one another: This unique situation creates a particularly fruitful research environment in the field of life sciences.
