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.
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.
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.
