MC-Health members investigate a broad range of issues and topics in the health sciences.

Detailed information on research projects conducted by MC-Health members are reported on the websites of institutes and persons.

One of the priority areas in MC-Health research is health care research.

According to the  German Federal Ministry of Education and Research, health care research aims at "generating scientific evidence to improve health care quality and safety as well as the benefit and the sustainability of health care". Among others, the Federal Ministry thus supports Networks of Health care research.

Another funding agency for health care research, the Federal Joint Commitee emphasizes that health care research is to consider issues in real-world health care. The "Innovation Fund" program has two major pillars: in health care research, projects are funded which "generate the scientific basis for solving issues in the management, organization and in financing of health care", in health care approaches, projects are funded which implement new forms of health care.
