Research Areas Print

The SGBM is built around investigators from seven different research areas of life sciences and medicine at the University of Freiburg and the  Max Planck Institute for Immunobiology and Epigenetics. Research focuses on:

Protein Structure and Function

Synthetic Biology and Signalling

Developmental Biology


Immunology and Virology

Molecular Medicine

Molecular Plant Sciences .

A large number of SGBM principal investigators are also affiliated with the Excellence Clusters CIBSS (Centre for Integrative Biological Signalling Studies), BIOSS (Centre for Biological Signalling Studies) and BL-BT (BrainLinks-BrainTools) and these 4 programs closely cooperate.

More information on the research carried out by each principal investigator as well as eventual membership in BIOSS and BL-BT is indicated in the corresponding profile. To look for an individual profile either consult "Our principal investigators" or click on the list found in each of the research areas.
