From 2002 to 2012 Ingvild Goetz supported fundamental and intervention research of eating disorders. In 2004, with the help of her husband, Dr. Stephan Goetz, she endowed a professorship at the Technical University of Dresden.
Since then, Prof. Dr. Corinna Jacobi has been testing new therapeutic concepts, including their short- and long-term effectiveness, and assessing the possibilities of their inclusion in the national health care system. A day clinic of the university furthers the implementation of a holistic neurobiological and clinical psychology research programme, providing further research evidence into all forms of eating disorders (Anorexia Nervosa, Bulimia Nervosa and Binge Eating as well as other underlying forms of eating disorders).
At the end of April 2009, the professorship became a permanent one, thanks to the help of funding from the Free State of Saxony.
