ResearchInstitutes and Centres
These institutes and centres, together with the campus-wide Core Facilities, offer ideal research and training opportunities for undergraduates and doctoral students, postdocs, junior research group leaders, and senior researchers alike. Heidelberg's success in the German Excellence Initiative enabled the establishment of innovative structures such as inter-institutional partnerships and research networks like the CellNetworks cluster. Numerous externally funded collaborative research centres and training networks also reflect the breadth and quality of research in Heidelberg's life science community.
Research and research-oriented teaching in the life sciences benefit greatly from the exchange with colleagues in other faculties and non-university institutions. Many of them are located on the Neuenheimer Feld campus, which strongly promotes scientific exchange and collaboration.
