Since June 1, 2024, this nationwide research center, with seven locations, has become a new partner of the German Centers for Health Research (DZG). The Munich site contributes its expertise in immunology, metabolic medicine, rare diseases, genetics, proteomics, data science, and cell and gene therapy. The Munich Child Health Alliance was founded by Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität (LMU), the Technical University of Munich (TUM) with its two university hospitals, Helmholtz Munich, and the Max Planck Institute of Biochemistry. The alliance introduced itself at a kick-off event on Tuesday, June 25, marking the beginning of a two-year development phase.
