Biomedicine

The goal of Biomedicine is to use a variety of life science research approaches to benefit human health. Basic research feeds into translational research, which extends into clinical trials and medical applications. Prominent biomedical research areas in Dresden include immunology, metabolism, tumour biology, neuroscience, bone research, and germ-cell biology, and there is a special emphasis on stem- and progenitor-cell research. To address the great complexity of basic and disease-related mechanisms and factors, we use a wide range of tools, including high-end microscopy and other imaging and cell-sorting methods, sophisticated mouse manipulation including humanized animal models, iPS and other stem cell technologies, molecular approaches, and innovative screening technologies.
