The TU Braunschweig and the HZI are in the process of establishing a new, joint centre for bioinformatics and systems biology in the form of the Braunschweig Integrated Centre for Systems Biology at the TU Braunschweig. The goal of the centre: researchers investigate how complex biological systems behave as a whole and how they regulate themselves ‑ and are regulated. The researchers are aiming to discover new clues for new medicines and therapies, as well as to understand how the interaction between pathogens and hosts function in detail. The centre is closely integrated in the research activities of experimental biology and chemistry, as well as engineering (control technology, Institute of Scientific Calculation, information technology).
