Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin - IRI Life Sciences


IRI Life Sciences - an institute of Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin in cooperation with Charité - Unversitätsmedizin Berlin and the Berlin Institute for Medical Systems Biology (BIMSB) / Max Delbrück Center for Molecular Medicine

IRI Life SciencesThe Integrative Research Institute for the Life Sciences (IRI Life Sciences) was founded in 2013 on the idea that cutting-edge science should be blind to distinctions between disciplines and institutional barriers. IRI Life Sciences acts as a physical connection between these three institutions and as an intellectual hub to promote cross-disciplinary dialogue. Since its founding,  it became an interface between different disciplines, connecting basic biological with clinical researchers, and theoreticians with experimentalists.

Regional collaborations

Togehter with Stiftung Charité and Berlin Institute of Health (BIH), IRI Life Sciences established the Joint Lab Bioinformatics to pool resources and strengthen the collaboration in the area of computational biology and bioinformatics. The Joint Lab is headed by IRI professor Nils Blüthgen and located in the IRI building on Campus Nord. 

International collaborations

IRI Life Sciences embraces the idea that truly excellent research can only be conducted in an international context. Therefore, IRI Life Sciences is fostering and maintaining collaborations with international research institutes and universities to faciliate joint research projects, joint training activities and access to state-of-the-art technologies.
