Zentrum für Molekulare Biologie der Universität Heidelberg

The ZMBH is a center for research and higher education in molecular biology and biomedicine. Our research aims at fundamental questions of molecular and cellular biology at the level of molecules, cells and organisms. Joint research interests resulted in the formation of the DKFZ-ZMBH-Alliance, a close collaboration of the ZMBH with the research program Cell and Tumor Biology of the German Cancer Research Center (DKFZ).
