About HaFCED

We are a modern, service-oriented research institute located at the heart of the city of Hamburg. Traditionally, our activities focus on the clinical and scientific care of patients suffering from inflammatory bowel disease (IBD). Other important areas are scientific consulting and support for medical-pharmaceutical projects. In addition, we will naturally provide you with assistance in all other areas of clinical-scientific research.


With over 20 years of experience in the clinical and scientific care of patients with IBD, HaFCED has access to extensive expert know-how. Research activities and support for innovative medical projects can bridge the gap between the reality of medical care and the therapeutic applications actually available.


Against this background, HaFCED sees itself both as a research institute for new phase II to IV studies and as having a responsibility towards the patients. Besides highly complex research projects, we focus just as intensively on providing consulting services for companies wishing to place innovations on the market and hence on providing immediate help for patients.
