About us

The Comprehensive Pneumology Center

At the Comprehensive Pneumology Center (CPC), experts from medicine and the life sciences are working closely together to elucidate the underlying mechanisms of chronic lung diseases like COPD (chronic obstructive pulmonary disease), lung fibrosis, lung cancer or asthma and to develop new approaches for their prevention, diagnosis and therapy. The CPC is an institution combining strong partners: Helmholtz Zentrum München, Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität (LMU) with the University Hospital and Asklepios Pulmonary Hospital in
Munich- Gauting. Also the CPC is one of the five members of the German Lung Research Center (DZL) uniting leading German universities and non-university based lung research units into one coherent organization.
