The Center for Alcohol Research (CAR) is located both at the Department of Medicine at  Salem Medical Center and the Theoretikum of the University of Heidelberg. Major goals are to better understand disease-mechanisms of chronic alcohol consumption, namely alcoholic liver disease and cancer. The CAR team consists of physicians, scientists, technicians and study nurses. CAR is headed by Helmut K. Seitz (director) and Sebastian Mueller (co-director).
