Lung diseases are among the most frequent causes of death worldwide. So far, there are only a few therapeutic approaches. Research in Germany is only beginning to make advances in this area.

The launch of the German Center for Lung Research (DZL) on April 15, 2011 enabled the pooling of German expertise in the field of pneumological research and clinical practice. The aim of the DZL is to find answers to open questions in lung disease research and thus make a significant contribution to improving prevention, diagnosis and therapy.
