We are actively working on the further development of intensive care medicine through numerous clinical and experimental research projects and projects to optimise processes and assure Quality.

The focal points of experimental and clinical research are pathophysiology and treatment of multiple organ failure. The department takes part in multicentre studies. Experimental research is conducted in the Experimental Surgery Facility (ESF) of the Department for BioMedical Research (DBMR) of the University of Bern.
