About us

The Technical University of Munich (TUM) is one of the best universities in Europe. TUM stands for outstanding achievements in research and teaching, interdisciplinarity, the promotion of talent and strong alliances with companies and scientific institutions across the globe.

At the Professorship for Public Health and Prevention, the goal of our research is to generate robust scientific evidence on the effectiveness, cost- effectiveness and equity impact of interventions and policies to support decision making in health policy and to ultimately improve population health. To generate this evidence, we apply modern empirical methods from the fields of public health, econometrics, epidemiology and decision analyses and closely cooperate with a range of stakeholders. A specific focus of our work is the prevention of non-communicable diseases. More information on the work of Prof. Michael Laxy and his team can be found at https: // www. sg.tum.de/en/php/home/.
