The research base at Davos is consolidating. The well-known Institut für Allergieforschung (Institute for Allergy Research) is moving into the Hochgebirgsklinik.
Davos. – The Davos Hochgebirgsklinik was successfully saved from bankruptcy and wants to restructure itself as an allergy research and clinical campus with an international reputation. This project is being supported by the renowned Swiss Institute for Allergie and Asthma Research (SIAF).
In a policy decision, the foundation governing body of this research institute based in Davos has unanimously supported the SIAF relocation to the Hochgebirgsklinik site.
Project with worldwide resonance
On Wednesday the SIAF announced that this decision means it will be supporting the creation of a “Hochgebirgs-Campus Davos” for patient-oriented allergology teaching and research. As a consequence, the Hochgebirgsklinik is one large and significant step closer to its goal of creating a world-leading centre for translational medicine where clinical practice and research work together under one roof.
Based on initial, rough planning, the move by SIAF with around 50 staff is expected to happen by mid-2016. (béz)
