One of the great concerns of the Eva Mayr-Stihl Foundation is to enable physicians, researchers and scientists to devote their attention to further advances in modern medicine. The focus of sponsorship in this case is on the Klinikum Stuttgart. The training of young staff has been supported for many years, a liver center and the center for lung medicine were set up and the “Stuttgart Cancer Center (SCC) –Eva Mayr-Stihl Tumor Center” was established. The latter serves to promote the interdisciplinary exchange of information among specialists to the benefit of more than 11,000 patients annually. The foundation has already signaled its support to the Klinikum for the coming years.There are still more areas where we can work together to make a difference”, says Eva Mayr-Stihl. Example: A research center for mucoviscidosis and the requisite respiratory equipment is to be set up. Furthermore, it is the wish of the physicians to push ahead with research into individualized precision medicine for the treatment of tumor patients.
