IZKF Würzburg – 20 years of connecting different fields to foster innovation
Since 20 years the Interdisciplinary Center for Clinical Research (IZKF) Würzburg supports (phyisican-)scientists at the University Hospital and the Medical Faculty of Würzburg University. The success of this important intramural research program fostering an open-minded and strong interdisciplinary research culture in Würzburg was celebrated on June 24, 2016. These festivities provided the opportunity for Prof. Andreas Beilhack to present most recent research achievements of his IZKF-funded research laboratory. In his lecture, titled “In vivo veritas – Novel concepts for immunotherapy”, he provided translational perspectives for the development of novel diagnostics and drugs to treat patients suffering from inflammatory diseases and cancer.
