The finger on the pulse of time


You would like to have more knowledge. You strive for innovation. You are searching for the best solutions. The scientists at the Robert-Bosch-Krankenhaus, the Dr. Margarete Fischer Bosch Institute for Clinical Pharmacology (IKP) and the Institute for the History of Medicine (IGM) conduct research to ensure that patients get the best therapy. When they decipher the effects of medicines or research the social, economic and cultural causes of diseases, they do so with meticulousness, perseverance and an inexhaustible thirst for knowledge. And their success benefits every patient!
The Robert-Bosch-Krankenhaus is one of the few non-university hospitals in Germany that has a research mandate and has arisen from a private initiative. The Robert Bosch Stiftung funds a large share of this research. The results flow straight into the patients' clinical treatment, thus offering them additional benefits.
Two institutes work under the umbrella of a research company. Numerous publications, in both national and international journals, confirm the scientific significance of the three institutions.

Dr. Margarete Fischer-Bosch-Institute for Clinical Pharmacology

In 1973, Robert Bosch's eldest daughter donated the Dr. Margarete Fischer-Bosch Institute for Clinical Pharmacology (IKP), which was named after her, to the Robert-Bosch Hospital. It was thanks to her generous donation that the research facility could be built. The institute is one of the largest facilities in the field of clinical pharmacology in Germany and is excellently equipped. In addition to further training that is aimed at becoming a specialist in clinical pharmacology, natural scientists and doctors can complete their doctorate at the Institute for Clinical Pharmacology.


Robert Bosch Centre for Tumour Diseases (RBCT)

Under the umbrella of the Robert Bosch Center for Tumour Diseases (RBCT), we combine patient-related, state-of-the-art research, oncological counselling and treatment for people suffering from cancer. Within the framework of innovative transnational collaborations and clinical trials, we offer customised diagnostics and therapy at the cutting edge of research.


Institute for the History of Medicine

Social, economic and cultural aspects of illness and health are the subject of historical research at the Institute for the History of Medicine (IGM). For this purpose, historical sources that provide information about patients are archived and evaluated, among other things. The second focal area is on the history of homoeopathy and medical pluralism.
