Friends of the HZI:
Directed Support for World Class Research
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).
Scientists at the HZI study the mechanisms involved in infectious diseases and host defense. They systematically translate the results of basic research into clinical applications. The Friends of the HZI make an important contribution to these efforts.
By joining Friends of the HZI you can support the HZI both financially and ideally. You will have close contact to the alumni network, which the association is currently establishing and can introduce your own experience and expertise. This tremendously helps HZI researchers to extend and develop their international contacts in the long run.
Your financial contribution helps us to support young scientists and facilitate networking and a broader knowledge transfer. This is possible thanks to your membership fee. Additional donations are highly welcome at any time and are, like your membership fee, tax deductible.
Friends of the HZI regularly inform you about current developments at HZI. You will receive personal invitations to all events organized by the organization. This way you will stay in direct contact with HZI researchers and fully informed about the latest scientific developments at the institute.
