Departement Biomedizin Basel
Oncology, Immunology, Neurobiology and Stem Cells and Regenerative Medicine, are represented in the Department of Biomedicine. By providing a bridge between basic science and clinical medicine, the Department of Biomedicine is an important component in the University of Basel’s strategic plan for Life Sciences.
Key to the success of the Department of Biomedicine is the willingness of our scientists and clinicians to communicate and to strive for excellence. Several core facilities have been established, two of them as a joint venture between our Department and the Biozentrum from the Faculty of Natural Sciences; these provide access to key technologies, such as genomic micro-arrays and knockout mice. The Department’s research groups obtain a large proportion of their research funds from competitive grants by foundations in Switzerland, the EU and other countries. More than 60% of the members are supported by third party funds.
The DBM with its five different institutes is situated in the heart of Basel in the vicinity to the downtown and the Rhine. You can reach us by plane (via EuroAirport Basel-Mulhouse-Freiburg), by train (via railway stations Basel SBB or Basel Badischer Bahnhof) or by car.
