Biomedicine

The section Biomedicine offers multiple research opportunities in the broad field of basic medical research. The section is governed by principal investigators from two faculties: the Biology and Preclinical Medicine Faculty, and the Medical Faculty. Within a diverse array of research topics, all research groups of the Biomedicine section have one ultimate goal in common: contributing to our understanding of human diseases.

Research groups of the biomedical section address highly relevant clinical topics, such as the genetics of human disease, cancer and immunology, HIV, cardiovascular and renal diseases, and eye diseases.

Two collaborative research centers, funded by the Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft (German Research Foundation), offer research opportunities within RIGeL’s Biomedicine section: Special Research (Sonderforschungsbereich) 699 addresses multiple aspects of the structure and function of a healthy and of a diseased kidney; the Research Group 1075 focuses on clinically relevant homoeostatic mechanisms within the eye.

For a more detailed overview of specific research opportunities, please refer to the RIGeL Faculty category and the websites of the Sonderforschungsbereich 699 and the Forschergruppe 1075.
