Governance Structure

The Faculty of Medicine has established an overarching governance structure, in particular to manage Core and Shared Facilities. It also collaborates closely with the University's Research Infrastructures Division.

Research Infrastructure Commission (FISKO)

The FISKO is responsible for the location concept, scientific evaluation and financial support of research infrastructures at the Faculty of Medicine.

The FISKO at the Faculty of Medicine is a commission established by the Faculty Board, comprising nine appointed members of the Research Commission, the chairman of the Budget and LOM Commission by virtue of office, two members from the group of professors of the Faculty of Medicine with voting rights, one exceptional scientist in his/her qualification phase as well as a deputy. The Vice-Dean for Research chairs the committee by virtue of his/her office. Further advisory members are the Dean of Research as well as the head of the Office of the Dean for Research and the officer for research infrastructures.

 The FISKO meets once a year and on an ad hoc basis. The rules of procedure of the Research Infrastructure Commission can be found here (internal access only) or can be requested by .
