BIMSB Moved to the Centre of Berlin
In spring 2019, BIMSB scientists moved from MDC’s research infrastructure at the Campus in Berlin-Buch to the centre of Berlin (). The building is entirely new and located on the central historical Campus of the Humboldt University. This new research site represents the first institutional and infrastructural expansion of the MDC into the centre of Berlin, supporting even closer interactions with major academic and medical institutions in the city and region.
The design for the new BIMSB building has been selected through an architectural competition and is perfectly integrated into the given setting at the Humboldt Campus Nord. It provides space for up to 25 research groups, approximately half experimental and half computational offering 5400 sqm of laboratory and office space. The building hosts high-tech-labs, state-of-art technology platforms, flexible workspaces and communication areas, that further promote innovative and interdisciplinary research.
After the site to the MDC in November 2014, construction started in February 2015. Following clearance of the site, ground testing and construction of the passage to and from Hannoversche Straße, deep ground work and excavation took place in spring 2015.
The pouring of the concrete marked the completion of the second phase of construction. This was celebrated at the on December 15, 2016, with the architects and representatives of the MDC, partner institutes, and the City of Berlin attending.
The building was inaugurated by German Chancellor Angela Merkel in February 26, 2019.

Student Symposium in Systems Biology
The aim of the BIMSB Seminar Series is to share and discuss the latest results and developments in Systems Biology. It features both scientists from BIMSB as well as guests from around the world.
Erik van Nimwegen, Biozentrum, University of Basel
Abderrahman Khila, Institute Genomics Functional De Lyon
Each year, around four world-leading scientists are invited to give special Distinguished Speaker lectures.The seminar takes place on Tuesdays, 2 pm at BIMSB. We cordially invite everybody interested to join this event. No registration is required.
This event brings together researchers in the field of Medical Systems Biology. The periodic events are an occasion where invited speakers provide us with updates on recent developments from both Germany and abroad. All members of the campus are welcome to join!
