The HMM seeks to prevent illness and death from targeted infectious disease threats through research and the translation of scientific information into real-world, practical applications, policies, and solutions.


Lectures are primarily addressed to students of human and dental medicine as well as to students of the PhD Studies of Medical Sciences and Clinical Medical Sciences of the Medical University of Innsbruck and of Human Biology, Biology, and Pharmacy of the Leopold-Franzens-University of Innsbruck. Additionally, we are involved in the performing of lectures for health professionals others than medical doctors and co-operate in post-educational courses in public health.
