Göttinger Zentrum für Molekulare Biowissenschaften
The Göttingen Center for Molecular Biosciences (GZMB) is a joint initiative of more than 20 research groups, affiliated with the Medical School (Humanmedizin), the Biology Faculty, the Chemistry Faculty and the School of Agricultural Sciences at the Georg August University Göttingen. All of these research groups work in the field of molecular biology.
The major goals of the GZMB are:
- Intensification of research activities by the formation and advancement of centers.
- Common utilization of high-end technologies.
- Support of young scientists by the establishment of independent junior research groups.
- Establishment of novel curricula with the aim of offering integrated teaching for students from all cooperating faculties.
In 2003, a new laboratory building was finished that houses six different groups of the Medical Faculty and the Biology Faculty. Five of these six groups are novel appointments. The Johnsen group will be an independent group within the Department of Molecular Oncology, headed by Professor Matthias Dobbelstein.
These newly established research and teaching facilities became a center for forthcoming activities of the GZMB. The new building already accommodates the administration, as well as lecture and seminar rooms for the novel International Master's/PhD Molecular Biology Program, which is an initiative of the GZMB groups together with scientists from two Max Planck Institutes in Göttingen.More extensive information about the Göttingen Center for Molecular Biosciences is available online at http://www.gzmb.uni-goettingen.de/.
