During the last 35 years the Center for Molecular Biology of Heidelberg University (ZMBH) has established itself as an internationally renowned institution for basic research and training in molecular and cell biology. ZMBH scientists investigate central biological processes such as regulation and evolution of the genome, mechanisms of protein folding and degradation, functioning of cellular surveillance systems as well as control of cell division and stem cell differentiation. Research results are being frequently transformed into biomedical applications. Moreover, the ZMBH has an ongoing strong collaboration with the Research Program Cell and Tumor Biology of the German Cancer Research Center (DKFZ) in the DKFZ ZMBH Alliance. The ZMBH offers courses for bioscience students pursuing their bachelor’s or master’s degree. PhD students can work on their thesis in an international and active research environment. We also host postdoctoral researchers and support junior scientists in setting up their independent research group.

German Cancer Research Center
The German Cancer Research Center (Deutsches Krebsforschungszentrum, DKFZ) with its more than 3,000 employees is the largest biomedical research institution in Germany. At DKFZ, more than 1,300 scientists investigate how cancer develops, identify cancer risk factors and endeavor to find new strategies to prevent people from getting cancer. They develop novel approaches to make tumor diagnosis more precise and treatment of cancer patients more successful. DKFZ’s Cancer Information Service (KID) provides individual answers to all questions about cancer for patients, the general public, and health care professionals. Jointly with partners from Heidelberg University Hospital, DKFZ runs the National Center for Tumor Diseases (NCT) located in Heidelberg and Dresden, and, also in Heidelberg, the Hopp Children’s Cancer Center (KiTZ). In the German Cancer Consortium (DKTK), one of six German Centers for Health Research, DKFZ maintains translational centers at seven university partnering sites. Combining excellent university hospitals with high-profile research at a Helmholtz Center at the NCT and DKTK sites is an important contribution to the endeavor of translating promising approaches from cancer research into the clinic in order to improve the chances of cancer patients. DKFZ is a member of the Helmholtz Association of National Research Centers, with ninety percent of its funding coming from the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research and the remaining ten percent from the State of Baden-Württemberg.
