High-profile Area: Health Sciences

The University’s high-profile area „Health Sciences“ in the main currently comprises the Institute for Public Health and Nursing Research (IPP), the SOCIUM - Research Center (formerly the Center for Social Policy, ZES) and the Leibniz Institute for Prevention Research and Epidemiology (BIPS).

Increasingly perceiving its current and future activities more as a research platform cutting across the various faculties of the University of Bremen and capable of integrating other institutes and research units, the high-profile area Epidemiology and Health Sciences recently changed its name to “Health Sciences”.

Taking due consideration of governance and support parameters, Faculty 11 plays an active role in enhancing the high-profile area as a research hub for health sciences in Bremen and the surrounding region.
