Clinical research objectives

The demands placed on research institutions have increased steadily in recent years. In order to meet these increased demands, the research department of St. Claraspital AG was founded in 2015 and finally transformed into a public limited company (as a subsidiary of St. Clara AG, henceforth "St. Clara Forschung AG"/"St. Clara Research Ltd") in April 2018, with the participation of the Lindenhof Foundation Berne.

With St. Clara Forschung AG, a research institution was established that meets all the legal requirements of a modern clinical research unit and is characterized by high-quality clinical research activities. International cooperation allows nationally and internationally competitive clinical and translational research to be conducted at a high level (Scientific Networks).
