The focus of our work is the study and investigation of pathogens which are medically relevant or can be used as models for researching infection mechanisms.
To the research topics
Around 700 employees in research, administration and infrastructure, and about 140 visiting scientists from 40 different countries are employed at the Helmholtz Centre for Infection Research.
Our scientists pursue research to expand our knowledge of the fundamental mechanisms behind medically relevant infectious diseases.
To the open positions
World Class research demands concentrated and focused support. To be internationally successful, adequate financial resources and a supportive environment are both important. This applies also to the Helmholtz Centre for Infection Research (HZI).
The Friends of the Helmholtz-Centre for Infection Research made it their business to support important activities of the centre. This concerns among others the results of basic research that is developed further to medical application.

Scientists from a consortium including the Helmholtz Centre for Infection Research (HZI) have been awarded the "Nanomedicine Award 2015". The researchers developed a vaccination method, in which the Vaccine is nebulised and then taken up by the mucous membranes of the lung. The Nanomedicine Award is presented every other year by the European Technology Platform on Nanomedicine...
To find custom-made therapies for each infection patient: This is the long-term goal of the "Centre for Individualised Infection Medicine" (CIIM), which is to commence operations on 03 December. The CIIM is a joint facility of the Helmholtz Centre for Infection Research (HZI) and the Hannover Medical School (MHH). The facility will be directed by Prof Michael P. Manns, who is a...
Antibiotic-resistant bacteria are on the advance throughout the world. This makes it even more important to develop medications to control these microorganisms. Scientists at Saar-University and at the Helmholtz Institute for Pharmaceutical Research Saarland (HIPS) engage in research on alternative agents. For example the team of Rolf Hartmann, professor of pharmacy, takes a close look...
