About us

Helmholtz Munich has established a lung information service for patients, family members and the general public. The Lung Information Service offers up-to-date, scientifically validated information from all areas of lung research and medicine in an easy-to-understand format via the Internet. Furthermore, the Lung Information Service hosts lung education days where physicians and lung researchers  give presentations on the current state of research. During these lung education days, patients and family members have the opportunity to interact directly with the researchers and to address their individual questions to them.

Helmholtz Munich has many years of experience in communicating health topics through other information services (Diabetes Information Service, FLUGS Information Service Environment and Health, Environmental Consulting Bavaria, etc. ) These serve as an important basis for the Lung Information Service.

We have a close professional exchange with the Cancer Information Service at the German Cancer Research Center: in an official cooperation project, it kindly provided the Lung Information Service with content on the topic of "lung cancer".
