Focus on human health

Pioneers for sustainable health

Research at Fraunhofer ITEM is focused on human health – and this has been so for almost four decades.

The emphasis is on two aspects: firstly, on protecting health from potentially harmful, in particular airborne substances, be they gases, aerosols, particles, fibers, or nanomaterials, and secondly, on investigating and developing diagnostic and therapeutic approaches, both at the preclinical and clinical levels.

A special focus is on airway research.
