About Science Campus

Bundled expertise and infrastructure against infectious diseases

The Science Campus Braunschweig-Süd in the district of Stöckheim combines expertise and infrastructure in the field of health research and systems biology for the targeted fight against infectious diseases. On 7,000 square metres of laboratory space, the partners - HZI, Leibniz Institute DSMZ, DZIF, Fraunhofer ITEM, TU Braunschweig and start-up companies - pursue application-oriented research projects. The infrastructure includes numerous technology platforms. The shared use of the state-of-the-art equipment ensures high capacity utilization and enables profitable operation.

Emerging infectious diseases and the spread of antibiotic resistance are just two examples of the major public health challenges posed by pathogens. Therefore, the Science Campus brings science, education, training and industry even closer together, thus acting as an innovative life science incubator.

Under the umbrella brand “Science Campus Braunschweig-Süd”, founded in 2017, the research location is visible nationwide. This location advantage attracts start-up companies, which benefit from the experience of the research institutes and in turn contribute new impulses. Short spatial distances facilitate the joint advancement of projects in infection and drug research. The synergies make it possible to quickly and systematically transfer results from basic research to application at the patient's bedside.
