Faculty of Biosciences

Welcome to the Faculty of Biosciences

The Faculty of Biosciences at Heidelberg University is one of the most attractive biosciences faculties in Europe in terms of research and teaching. It covers a broad spectrum of working areas from molecular biosciences to biodiversity. Research questions are addressed with the help of all conceivable experimental and computer-based methods from structural biology to systems biology.

Current examples of the scientific life of our faculty can be found under News. Information on individual working groups and research networks can be found on the pages of the centres and institutes as well as under Research.

The faculty is part of the unique campus in Heidelberg called Neuenheimer Feld. The Neuenheimer Feld is not only home to all the natural science faculties and Heidelberg Medicine, but also to outstanding non-university research institutions. The members of the Molecular Biosciences Heidelberg were very successful in the Excellence Initiative. Among other things, this has contributed to the establishment of campus-wide core facilities, which greatly facilitate access to high-end technologies for research and teaching.
