The new Centre for Structural Systems Biology on the Hamburg-Bahrenfeld research campus provides laboratories with highly advanced technical facilities, for example for cryo S3 (safety level 3) microscopy, on 13,000 m². Furthermore, the Centre provides offices, conference rooms and a 180-seat auditorium.
The new building for the CSSB was developed with the intent of promoting basic research, interdisciplinary collaboration, innovation and mentoring young professionals. It fulfils all prerequisites for an interdisciplinary research. About 180 biologists, chemists, medical experts, and physicists from nine research facilities work hand in hand here. The CSSB offers the latest technologies for an efficient research on infections and resistances to scientists coming from around the world. The CSSB has become a place where they can enjoy multi and interdisciplinary research. Various institutions, independent research bodies, clinics, and universities from several German federal states as well as from abroad are among the users.
