The University Children’s Hospital Basel is committed to Paediatric Research in order to prevent disease and improve diagnosis, therapy and healthcare. Our goal is to foster clinical, basic and translational research in our main research areas of human biology – the lung, the brain, the musculoskeletal system and the immune system. Our research is international and supported by several research initiatives. The research includes active focus on research excellence as a top priority, promotion of young researchers and networking with other parties for the need of research in Paediatrics. We are specially focused on developmental physiology, asthma and bioinformatics.

Long-established research experience in paediatric pulmonology, particularly in the field of asthma and developmental physiology and computational physiology. We are running a birth cohort study (BILD) investigating genetic and environmental influences on infant lung development and we are interested in the mathematical modelling of complex airway diseases. We have hosted several international Post-Doc Researchers and visiting professors from France, Italy, Germany, Austria, Greece, The Netherlands, Australia, Venezuela, Japan, China and the US.
