Universities and research in Regensburg
The RCI Regensburg Center for Interventional Immunology was established in 2010 as a central unit of Regensburg University in order to tie all academic research areas related to the development of new immunotherapies (e.g. Departments of Internal Medicine, Surgery).
The RCI aims at researching, developing and quickly applying improved therapies against cancer, infections, autoimmune diseases as well as in the field of organic and stem cell therapy. Close networking between University and University Hospital thus offers high research efficiency. Eventually, the RCI shall become an extra-faculty research institute of the Leibniz-Association.
The “Regensburg Center of Biomedical Engineering” (RCBE) is an inter-faculty and inter-university research institute of the Ostbayerische Technische Hochschule Regensburg (OTH Regensburg) and the Regensburg University (UR). In the Regensburg Center of Biomedical Engineering (RCBE), biomedical expertise of the university and engineering and medical informatics expertise of the OTH are pooled, with a special emphasis on joint research and development, as well as training. The main topics of the RCBE are Medical Computer Science and Biomedical Engineering.
