Translational Genomics is a research field with great promise for advancement: Analysis of genes can help in detecting diseases at an early stage as well as in determining new drug targets for therapy. Helmholtz Munich is particularly at the cutting edge in the use of these new methods.
Women in Leadership Positions: Numerous renowned female researchers work at Helmholtz Munich. Ensuring that female scientists receive the best support for their careers is an important element in promoting excellence.
Researchers at Helmholtz Munich are working toward a world without diabetes. They are not doing so alone, but with a network of organizations, hospitals, and pharmaceutical companies. Their goal is to use experts’ knowledge to create something new: innovative prevention and treatment of diabetes.
Every year, millions of people fall ill with Chagas or sleeping sickness. Both diseases are caused by parasites. Researchers have discovered a weak spot in those parasites, which may be a key to a potentially life-saving drug.
The Women@HelmholtzMunich Month aims to raise awareness for women in science and science-related positions. We reach out to all Helmholtz Munich members: Empower women to encourage a respectful togetherness!
