BIOME - Scientific Networks

Centre for Medical Biotechnology (ZMB)

The University of Duisburg-Essen founded this interdisciplinary scientific centre in 2003 to unify the biomedical research work groups at the medical school at Universitätsklinikum Essen as well as the natural science faculties at the campus in Essen (Biology and Chemistry). A large part of these doctorates are incorporated into the graduate school’s lecture programme.

Collaborative Research Centre 1093

Supramolecular Chemistry on Proteins

CRC 1093 links the Faculties of Chemistry, Biology and Medicine at the University of Duisburg-Essen with each other. The Eindhoven University of Technology in The Netherlands as well as the Max Planck Institue of Molecular Physiology in Dortmund are also involed in this research venture. The initiative is funded by the German Research Foundation (DFG).

The CRC aims at applying recent knowledge and methods from supramolecular chemistry to achieve specific interaction with proteins by artificial ligands.

Collaboration Network for Biomedical Scientists

The Collaboration Network for Biomedical Scientists (CoLab Biomed) is a social network site, a collaboration tool and an e-learning and knowledge management application for biomedical scientists at the University of Duisburg-Essen. It is a joint project of the Centre for Medical Biotechnology (ZMB) and the Graduate School of Biomedical Science (BIOME) within the main research area of Biomedical Sciences.

CENIDE

Nanotechnology offers the possibility to discover new properties in supposedly long-known materials and to use them. The applications of nanotechnology are almost endless and range from power engineering to materials science to medicine.

CENIDE, the "Center for Nanointegration Duisburg-Essen", represents the appropriate focus of research at the University of Duisburg-Essen (UDE): Since 2005, it links research and teaching activities that deal with the nano-dimension, in natural sciences, engineering and in medicine. In short: CENIDE is the community of nano-researchers at the UDE – the know-how of more than 50 working groups under guidance of designated experts meets here. Partnerships with external members with similar research approaches strengthen the skills spectrum.

Werkstatt Wissenschaftskarriere

The University of Duisburg-Essen has created a broad-based communicative platform for all doctorates and postdocs of the university. The concept behind this Ph.D./postdoc forum is to integrate young scientists from every faculty into a large, lateral-thinking core group and to further these people's potential and skills by exposing them to shared educational and career opportunities. A number of Werkstatt Wissenschaftskarriere's extended networks are of beneficial interest to our young researchers. Werkstatt Wissenschaftskarriere is collaborating closely with BIOME on the design and provision of suitably-tailored soft skill seminars for our biomedical science doctorates.

MediMent

To ensure sustainable internationally competitive cutting edge research in medicine at Universitätsklinikum Essen, this doctoral and post-doc career advancement programme invites potential young doctors and scientists to orientate themselves scientifically at an early stage in their careers and to identify and to strategically plan their professional goals with the guidance and support of an experienced mentor. The mentoring programme consists of the following modules: group mentoring, seminar programme and networking.
