Staff Magazine "InFact"
For many years the InFact has been the staff magazine of the Helmholtz Centre for Infection Research and has been an integral part of the internal communication. Since 2017, the magazine is also available on the HZI homepage for everyone who is interested. In reports, interviews and portraits, HZI employees inform about research projects, the research strategy and the people at the various HZI locations. Have fun reading the InFact!
Dear readers, research can be successful only if it has an international focus, if scientists are able to share their experience, results and materials beyond borders. This is exemplified by our headline story: Searching for new agents - for instance against multi-resistant pathogens - HZI scientists collect microbes in Indonesia and test them for the production of biologically active substances. They also train scientific staff on-site, which then supports them in collecting the samples.
This is the first issue of InFact in its new design and - as a reflection of our international focus - fully bilingual.
I hope you will enjoy reading the magazine and look forward to your feedback!
