Research Networks and Junior Research Groups

Research networks under the umbrella of the Research Network of Zoonotic Infectious Diseases are large, coordinated working groups doing research in one specific area of zoonoses research. They consist of several sub-projects.

Junior research groups focus on a very specific zoonotic research subject and are led by a highly successful junior research group leader.

Both research networks and junior research groups focus their investigations on either zoonotic pathogens or hosts of zoonotic pathogens.

You will find detailed presentations on each research network or junior research group on the following web pages (still incomplete).

Organization

Each research network and junior research group is represented by a coordinator. She or he has a permanent seat on the coordinating committee. Besides the coordinators, representatives of public and veterinary health as well as of the Federal Ministry of Education and Research, the Federal Ministry of Health, the Federal Ministry of Food and Agriculture, and the Federal Ministry of Defence are members of the coordinating committee.

A coordination project at CharitéUniversitätsmedizin Berlin coordinates the Research Network of Zoonotic Infectious Diseases as a whole. For further questions concerning the Research Network of Zoonotic Infectious Diseases, please contact the office:

The Research Network of Zoonotic Infectious Diseases cooperates closely with the German Research Platform for Zoonoses and is funded by the Federal Ministry of Education and Research.

Projects

Under the umbrella of the Research Network of Zoonotic Infectious Diseases, projects to cross-link single research networks and to initiate new cooperation will soon begin. Furthermore, projects initiated by and conducted at public or veterinary health services will enable these players to take part in research activities.

First projects have started in autumn 2018.
