MH Hannover

Hanover Medical School

Hannover Medical School (MHH), is one of the world leading university medical centres. MHH has successfully set up three supra-regional research centres focused on infection biology and immunology: the German Centre for Infection Biology, Dzib; the TWINCORE (a centre for translational research) and the Centre for Infection Biology, ZIB, the latter including a PhD training program. Moreover, infection biology plays a major role in all graduate study programs hosted at the MHH. Important in this regard is the existence of the Hannover Biomedical Research School (HBRS; This school founded in 2000 was awarded "excellent graduate school" in October 2006.

The Institute for Cellular Chemistry is well equipped to perform all types of molecular biology techniques as well as glyco- and protein analyses. We are experienced in Leishmania genetic manipulations, structural biology and have access to state of the art analytical platforms like deep sequencing, FACS, electron- and fluorescence microscopy, protein crystallography, mass spectrometry and bioinformatics.
