The science department is responsible for research work of the group and is engaged in new and existing concepts and treatment methods. The goal is to integrate the scientific knowledge of research into the practice-oriented treatment methods. Besides the development of new treatments, improvements of already existing treatments are also involved.

For this reason the BIRG offers a platform where projects are supported in an experienced and science-oriented group. In cooperation with the industry emerges therefore solutions on behalf of the patients develop.
