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.
To the research topics
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.
To the open positions
The Friends of the Helmholtz Centre for Infection Research support dedicated young scientists and promote their networking with other researchers and companies. Furthermore, they enable scientific events and publications.

Metagenomics looks at the entirety of the genomic information of a habitat. There are various methods that can be used in investigations of this type. In fact, so many of them that it is often difficult to find the best fit for a certain analysis. For this reason, scientists of the Helmholtz Centre for Infection Research (HZI) in Braunschweig, the University of Vienna and the…
