One focus of our research involves the detailed investigation of patients with COPD. Of particular interest to us is how the limitations of lung function develop and what impact comorbidities and physical activity have on patients with COPD. A national cohort of COPD patients was formed in connection with these questions and the affected patients were examined annually.
If you suffer from COPD and are interested in participating in a research project, we would be pleased to send you more detailed information. Please feel free to contact us at any time via the address provided.
