Understanding diseases

Scientists at the Center investigate young megakaryocytes under the fluorescence microscope. They want to find out more about their role in stopping bleeding.

Promoting young scientists

With our Virchow School Lab and our own degree courses we contribute to creating tomorrow's top researchers.

Recognizing connections

Our scientists want to explain molecular processes to better understand the causes of cardiovascular, cancer, or infectious diseases.

Well equipped

Our scientists work with the most up-to-date technologies – a basis for excellent research.
