Welcome to HMLS
Heidelberg University has a leading position in the Molecular Life Sciences at the national level and is highly visible internationally. The quality and diversity of research institutions at the University and its external partners offer a unique prospect for future development as these institutes work together on basic questions of molecular life sciences. In the Initiative for Excellence, Life Sciences were awarded the CellNetworks Cluster and the Hoffmann-Berling International Graduate School. The HMLS programme was established within the institutional strategy of Heidelberg University in order to fully utilise this outstanding potential. HMLS is integrating and bridging molecular life sciences at the University, the European Molecular Biology Laboratory (EMBL), the Max Planck Institute for Medical Research, and the German Cancer Research Center (DKFZ). A central component is the creation of a representative advisory board. A Research Council with representatives from all participating institutions assists HMLS in questions of research strategies. Initially, this structure will comprise eight research areas which use the core technology platforms at BioQuant and the core facilities. It will thus contribute to advancement in the field of modern biology and molecular medicine.
