Research of the Institute for Complementary and Integrative Medicine

Our research is integrative with a focus on digital health for mind and body. We address research questions from different phases of the research cycle from translational research to implementation research and conduct clinical trials and systematic reviews. We use a broad spectrum of quantitative research methods and mixed methods and involve patients in a participatory research approach. Our research projects focus on mind body therapies in digital and face-to-face settings and acupuncture. In addition, we explore the impacts of patient expectations and preferences on treatment effects.
