NeuroCure BrainLab "Breakout-Session"

Am Freitag den 12. Mai 2017 begingen klinische Forscher und Grundlagenwissenschaftler des Clusters die neuen OP-Räume der Neurochirurgie, die Neurointensivstation und die Notaufnahme im kürzlich sanierten Bettenhochhaus. Des Weiteren konnte auch das einzigartige Schlaganfall-Einsatz-Mobil (STEMO), mit Computertomograph (CT) und Kleinlabor ausgestattetem Rettungsfahrzeug, besichtigt werden. Die hochmoderne Technik soll künftig verstärkt genutzt werden, um in einem interdisziplinären Forschungsansatz Mechanismen, akuter und hyperakuter Erkrankungen zu untersuchen und neue Behandlungsmöglichkeiten zu entwickeln.
