The Ruhr University Children’s Hospital (Director: Prof. Dr. Thomas Lücke) located at St. Josef Hospital combines all major pediatric subspecialties except for oncology under one roof including an institute of pediatric radiology and a research department of child nutrition. Due to the close connection of the various departments (for example: Neuropediatrics, Pulmonology, CF, Allergology, Pediatric Gastroenterology, Pediatric Endocrinology, Diabetes, Immunology, Neonatology) with the staff of the study centre, a high quality in study realization is guaranteed. 

Pediatric research activities are ongoing in the majority of pediatric subspecialties of the Ruhr University Children’s Hospital. Our employees have many years of experience in GCP-conform clinical research. An attached laboratory enables diagnostic and functional procedures directly on site. Under these favourable conditions, national and international studies of phase I-III and observational studies are being carried out for years. In addition, studies initiated by ourselves (IITs) are performed. Special research interest lies in the fields of rare diseases, neuro-metabolics and nutrition, rare lung diseases, characterization of lung diseases and inflammation, and endocrine disorders, especially disorders of sexual development.

The CSC works closely together with the relevant ethics committee of the Ruhr-University Bochum.

Department of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry and Psychotherapy, Faculty of Medicine Carl Gustav Carus, Technische Universitaet Dresden

The emphasis of the Department of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry and Psychotherapy of the University Hospital Carl Gustav Carus in Dresden lies on the treatment of tic disorders, attention deficit/hyperactivity as well as obsessive-compulsive disorder, autism spectrum disorders, eating disorders, trauma-related disturbances, and schizophrenia. Our research focuses on developing a better understanding of the psychopathology of and treatment options for AD/HD, OCD, TD, ASD, eating disorders and affect regulation using a range of approaches including neuroimaging and neurophysiology, genetics and immunology, neuropsychopharmacology pharmacovigilance, and clinical trials.

The close cooperation of medical staff, psychologists, nursing staff, social educators, occupational and movement therapists enables comprehensive diagnostics and targeted treatment. We develop an individually tailored therapy concept consisting of non-drug and drug therapies and procedures. The department engages itself intensively in child and adolescent psychiatric research. Within this framework, the employees of five independent research groups (Experimental Developmental Psychopathology, Cognitive Neurophysiology, Cognitive Developmental Neurobiology, Stress and Substance Dependence in Adolescence, Translational Developmental Neuroscience) design and implement various clinical studies and supervise pharmaceutical studies. Researchers and clinicians further participate in international consortia studies, for example, within the European Society for Study of Tourette Syndrome (ESSTS) or the European Network of Research on Hyperkinetic Disorders (EUNETHYDIS). For all topics, we pursue a broad, multi-method approach with the goal of a better understanding of the pathophysiological processes "from gene to behavior". We pursue the idea of translational research in order to transfer research results as quickly as possible into improvements in diagnostics and therapy.

Research is a global task - the scientific activities at the Dr. von Hauner Children’s Hospital make the Ludwig-Maximilians-University (LMU) part of a network featuring numerous clinical and scientific centres worldwide. The multifaceted clinical research activities are coordinated by the interdisciplinary paediatric study centre (Hauner iPSC) and the researchers of the various subdivisions and working groups are supported in their research activities by specialized personnel. The Hauner iPSC established a clinic-wide quality assurance system for clinical studies and thus enables clinical trials to be conducted in accordance with the requirements of the German Medicines Act (AMG) and the Medical Devices Act (MPG) in accordance with Good Clinical Practice (GCP) for all working groups of the Children's Hospital.

The Dr. von Hauner Children’s Hospital is part of the Ludwig Maximilian University Munich (LMU) and our physicians and scientists demonstrate unwavering commitment and the highest level of enthusiasm for the continuous advancement of paediatric medicine. The research activities at the hospital are wide-ranging and encompass all questions relating to health and illness in the early stages of human development.  
A main aim of paediatric research is to discover new and effective treatment possibilities and make them available for children in particular for those with chronic, complex, and rare diseases. To push ahead our efforts, Physicians and researchers at the Dr. von Hauner Chidren’s Hospital are part of numerous national and international research networks and are involed in pioneering projects for research into diseases and treatments. The hospital is involved in three out of six of the national health centres funded by the Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF):
-    The German Consortium for Translational Cancer Research (DKTK)
-    The German Centre for Infection Research (DZIF)
-    The German Centre for Lung Research (DZL)

In 2018, the Dr. von Hauner's Children's Hospital recorded 209 ongoing clinical trials.  
Actually the Dr. von Hauner's Children's Hospital is leading one IIT, the “HCQ in pediatric ILD particularly 4surfdefect” Study, and a new study is due to start shortly (TRACE - Transfer of multivirius-specific T-cells following transplantation).
Our research focuses on rare diseases, on systems biology, and cell and genetic function.

Clinic for Pediatrics and Adolescent Medicine 
Department of General Pediatrics

We treat children and adolescents of all ages at the Clinic for Pediatrics and Adolescent Medicine of the University Hospital Muenster. The doctors of the Children's Hospital are involved in various research projects covering basic research to clinical research. This close connection between basic research and patient care (bench to bedside) enables individual and innovative treatments at the highest medical level as well as continuous improvement of therapies.  

The Clinic for Pediatrics and Adolescent Medicine has its research focus on rare diseases. The rarity of diseases complicates adequate patient care and clinical research. We face this challenge as a university institution with special ambition in our own "Centre for Rare Diseases" (CSE Münster, ZSE Duo), within several European Reference Networks for Rare Diseases (ERN-LUNG, ERKNet, MetabERN, Endo-ERN, ERN RITA) and the GermanNeonatalNetwork. We coordinate rare disease registries such as the ERN PCD Registry ( for Primary Ciliary Dyskinesia (PCD) and the NEOCYST Registry ( on Early Onset Cystic Kidney Diseases, and we participate in additional registries such as the German Registry for Cystic Fibrosis Muko.web (
Research areas cover especially ciliopathies, pneumology, neonatology, nephrology, congenital metabolic disorders, neurology, endocrinology, gastroenterology, immunology, and psychosomatics. We continuously conduct clinical studies in those fields. Particularly in the field of ciliopathies and congenital metabolic diseases, we also work on the development of new therapeutic approaches.

Our clinic promotes close cooperation with patients and parents on a national and international level. Members of the clinic were founding members of "Kartagener Syndrom und Primäre Ciliäre Dyskinesie e.V." (, US PCD Foundation ( and NEPHTHI – N ( We are also tightly linked to overarching patient/parent organisations such as EURORDIS (, the voice of Rare Disease Patients in Europe.

We have dedicated curricula and structured career programs for clinician scientists and medical scientists to give doctors and scientists both the knowledge and the time to conduct clinical studies in our clinic. We continously train research staff in internal and external courses following national and international guidelines to ensure Good Clinical Practice (GCP).
