The Clinic for Internal Medicine I at the University Hospital Schleswig-Holstein, Campus Kiel is an academic maximum-care medical center in the fields of gastroenterology, pulmonology, endocrinology, rheumatology, adiposity, nutrition and ageing medicine. The hospital has a strong history as a lead partner in international multi-center clinical trials in chronic inflammatory disease and is traditionally linked to basic science groups, especially in the field of genetics and genomics.
The Schreiber group at 1 MED aims to understand the etiology of chronic inflammatory diseases in the gut and lung and tries to develop innovative therapies for this group of incurable diseases.The group has been speaker institution of the National Genome Research Network (NGFN) and has driven the German GWAS initiative that led to many seminal papers delineating molecular risk maps for human complex disorders, including Crohn disease, periodontitis and sarcoidosis. The group commands a high throughput genotyping facility and is partner in the popgen biobank program with more than 70.000 patients in Schleswig-Holstein under long-term follow up. An interdisciplinary treatment centre for longitudinal examinations of patients under experimental therapies was set up with the help of a DFG excellence cluster (inflammation at interfaces), for which Stefan Schreiber serves as the speaker.
