Together breaking new ground in drug research

The Helmholtz Drug Research Initiative builds on an exquisite joint technology infrastructure of the participating Helmholtz health centres and their partners, established and upgraded by major investments in instrumentation, technology and personnel through Portfolio funding. On this basis an increased stream of highly qualified drug candidates shall flow by

  • guided access to the most advanced and appropriate resources and expertise, guaranteeing an optimal multi-centre support of projects from idea to successful translation, without gap
  • an expanding joint knowledge base to continuously improve understanding of complex pathologies and the development of intelligent approaches for treatments
  • cross-centre technology sharing through training of staff and students
  • scientific and strategic outreach to the academic and industrial world through a series of workshops and conferences presenting the progress of the work
  • integration into global networks and knowledge communities to secure cutting–edge research
