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.

Herpesviruses, such as the cytomegalovirus (CMV), have been associated with changes in the immune system of older people for a long time. However it remained unclear, if this means that immune protection and function are impaired by a herpesvirus infection. A new study by scientists from the Helmholtz Centre for Infection Research (HZI) in Braunschweig suggests that herpesviruses do not...
Diwali, the Festival of Lights, is one of the most important celebrations in the Indian culture. It has a similar status as Christmas for Christians. It always begins on the 15th day of the Hindu month of Kartik. Because this month is connected with the moon cycle, the start of the multi-day festival varies every year. 2015 it lasts from the 10 to 15 November. Hindus, Jains and Sikhs...
The new Marie Curie training network for immunologists called ENLIGHT-TEN (European Network Linking Informatics and Genomics of Helper T cells) commenced on October 9 with a kickoff meeting of 20 experts from seven European countries. The aim of the network is to develop an interdisciplinary training for young researchers in T cell immunology and big data analysis. The ENLIGHT-TEN...
