Covid-19 studies currently being conducted at the University Hospital of Tübingen:

The studies mentioned here are a selection of the Corona studies conducted at the hospital.

The Department of Pediatrics and Adolescent Medicine is participating in a new observational study investigating the effectiveness of preventive, self-administered corona testing.

Pupils and teaching staff of the Geschwister-Scholl-Schule and the Dorfacker- and Köstlinschule in Tübingen have the opportunity to perform a corona test independently from home by means of a throat swab.

The results of the pilot project will show whether such preventive testing can contribute to safe school operation during the corona virus pandemic in order to avoid possible school closures.

From the summer holidays to the autumn holidays, all participants in the study can take the test several times and free of charge.
Participation in the study is voluntary, the test kits are provided by the company Centogene.

The University Medicine Network

In order to strengthen and bundle know-how and resources in researching and combating Covid-19, the BMBF is funding the establishment of the Network University Medicine (NUM), which is coordinated by the Charité and encompasses the entire German university medicine.

Within the framework of the NUM, the participating university hospitals are researching very different aspects of Covid-19 in twelve projects. Due to the cooperative, structure-building character of the projects and activities of the network, an important contribution is thus being made to the optimised handling of future pandemics (keyword Pandemic Preparedness).
