Internationality...

...is an important characteristic of our institute. International networking and stimuli  encourage the quality of our research and it is an additional value for our scientific work. There are more than 40 scientists from over 20 nations working at TWINCORE. Learn more about our cooperations and international exchange programmes.

What does translational infection research mean in practice? How do we bridge basic research and clinical challenges? What kind of impulses and questions do our scientists get from the clinical environment? Our new rubric "translational case examples" shows how we combine basic research and clinical questions and what drives our science.
