Medical staff and referring physicians

The goal of the Center for Rare Diseases Erlangen (ZSEER) is to provide patients with rare diseases with the latest knowledge, to help people with unexplained diseases to a faster diagnosis, to develop innovative therapies and to make university and clinical work more patient-oriented. To this end, the ZSEER works closely with experts and institutes of the Uniklinikum Erlangen on an interdisciplinary basis.
