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!
Most people have a negative perception of bacteria – as something that makes them ill. In fact, we could not survive without bacteria. Trillions of them live in our intestine, where they not only help us to digest our food but also support our defence against germs. The other effects that these tenants can have on our health and ways to make life easier for them in our intestine are currently in the focus of research – at the HZI of all places, as you can see from our headline story.
In our interview, Christopher Baum, President of Hannover Medical School, tells us about the hospital's new outlook and its new projects with the HZI and their shared subsidiaries.
I hope you will enjoy reading the magazine and am looking forward to your feedback!
