Professor Dieter Häussinger M.D, Professor and Chairman of the Department of Gastroenterology, Hepatology and Infectious Diseases, University of Düsseldorf.
It is imperative that research is easily accessible and widely available and as a journal publishing key clinical research of international importance it is essential that European Journal of Medical Research reaches an international author and readership. The move to Open Access publishing should greatly assist in this goal and it is hoped that European Journal of Medical Research will become a key platform for the dissemination and discussion of exciting and novel clinical research.
Within the University of Düsseldorf the Clinic of Gastroenterology, Hepatology and Infectiology carries out research into infectious diseases and diseases of the liver. The clinic is internationally recognised for its basic research in areas such as liver metabolism , disorders of the gastrointestinal tract and the pancreas.
