“In future, diseases will be better avoided and cured if we help the medical profession to better understand the occurrence of disease in each individual.”
Allergies and cardiovascular disease are widespread conditions suffered by billions of people worldwide. Neurodermatitis not only causes considerable discomfort for those affected, but is also a significant risk factor for other diseases. For more than ten years, the Kühne Foundation has therefore been supporting a pioneering program of research and therapies for allergies with a focus on neurodermatitis, based at the Davos Medicine Campus. On the campus, in addition to running the Hochgebirgsklinik, the foundation is also increasingly supporting research into personalized treatment of heart disease. The goal is personalized medicine, where the treatment responds precisely to the specific circumstances and requirements of each individual patient.
