The Center for Biomedical Research and Translational Surgery

...has 3 individual divisions. The Department for Drug and Device Testing is responsible for preclinical testing of new drugs and devices. The Department of Training and Simulation is dedicated to educate surgeons and interventionalists in our different operation theaters including our new hybrid OR. At the Cardiovascular Institute we have concentrated our research program.

We are your partner, if you want to perform your commercial or scientific projects in our operation theaters or the adjacent animal facilities.
