All activities are aligned to internationally emerging rules and standards in research data management including data provenance, use and access as well as legal and ethical aspects of data integration. Through an active collaboration in the work groups “IT-Infrastructure and Quality Management”, “Data Security”, “Biobanking”, and “Molecular Medicine” of the Technology, Methods and Infrastructure for Networked Medical Research (TMF) as well as the work group “Biomedical Informatics” and the committee “Medical Informatics” of the GMDS, the demand-based planning and the use of new and complementary methods to support medical research is enabled. The recommendations of the German Council for Scientific Information Infrastructures, the priority initiative “Digital Information”, the German Council of Science and Humanities, and the German Research Foundation are analyzed as well as the plans of the eHealth-Initiave of the Federal Ministry of Health. All work groups within the department are being supported by a group of scientific information specialists and data stewards.

An overview of all current third party-funded research projects can be accessed in the submenu "Projects". The submenu "Project Archive" offers a list of projects that we continously support through the provision of research infrastructure after their funding period has ended. A list of recent publications can be accessed in the submenu "Publications". Requests regarding our research activity can be directed at at all times.



Work Group "Infrastructure for Translational Research"

Work Group "Clinical Collaborative Research"

The work group provides concepts, implementations, operation, and evaluation of innovative IT-infrastructures for research data management in collaborative research projects. This encompasses applications for study data banks, picture data banks, pseudonymization as well as platforms for the sustainable publication of research data. The focus lies on linking and integrating different infrastructure components as well as the long-term curation of research data or samples.

The work groups has longtime experience in the setup and operation of data centers and is a partner in several EU-, BMBF-, and DFG-funded collaborative research projects. The core areas of the cooperation with clinical researchers are cardiology (Herzzentrum Göttingen, DZHK, SFB), neurology (KKNMS, EUReMS), and psychiatry (Forschungsnetz für psychische Erkrankungen, BipoLife). Through the participation in the steering committee of the Göttingen eResearch Alliance, there is an intense, interdisciplinary exchange regarding developments in research data management on Göttingen Campus.

The sub work group "Cross-sectoral Collaborative Research" develops innovative cross-sectoral and cross-systemic IT-solutions for health care. The focus currently lies on procedures for process- and decision support as well as approaches to IT-based professional training. The sub work group draws on deep knowledge and experinece regarding sectoral interfaces, nursing IT and electronic patient records as well as the development and integration of IT-solutions in distributed infrastructures. The sub work group ist a partner in several BMBF-funded collaborative research projects. The core areas of the collaboration are clinical and preclinical emergency care (project OPTINOVA) and care of chronic wounds (project PosiThera).
