Locations of the Helmholtz Centre
The Helmholtz Centre for Infection Research is located throughout Germany. In addition to the main campus in Braunschweig, there are facilities in 4 other cities: Hamburg, Hanover, Saarbrücken and Würzburg.
In many parts of the world it has proved possible to push back the spread of infectious diseases; however, they are not yet defeated quite the opposite, in fact: microbes are developing resistance to medicines; global trade and foreign travel are transporting pathogens around the world at an ever faster pace. Tuberculosis, AIDS, hepatitis and malaria threaten the health of millions of people.
