About HICE

The Helmholtz Zentrum M├╝nchen - German Research Center for Environmental Health, the University of Rostock and a number of national and international partners cooperate in the new Virtual Institute to establish a long-term scientific research initiative for the investigation of the causes and mechanisms of environmentally influenced diseases.

In the initial phase (INF funding period) the HICE focuses on a deeper understanding of the impact of anthropogenic aerosols on human health.

The successful investigation of this highly complex, multifaceted and interdisciplinary topic in Environmental Health is mapped by a structured coordination of expertise and contributors from various scientific disciplines including analytical chemistry, physics, biochemistry, biology, medicine, engineering and informatics as well as an access to clinical researchers. The consortium is composed on the basis of bringing together European top scientists, non-university research institutions and commercial business partners with complementary expertise and up-to-date technology. The HICE Helmholtz Virtual Institute represents a perfect instrument for building and strengthening this strategic partnership.
