Biotechnology Campus Dresden Johannstadt

Over recent years, the TU Dresden together with non-university institutions has made molecular bioengineering its major focus. This focus has a unique standing in the life sciences within Europe. The expression combines molecular bioengineering science that is based on natural scientific and engineered scientific.

This began with the resumption of the Masters degree in Biology at the TU Dresden in 1994 and the related buildup of scientific research. A series of excellent research centers were then founded as part of a successful drive to make Dresden a competitive location for Biotechnology and Biomedicine. The Max Planck Institute for Molecular Cell Biology and Genetics was founded in 1998. The Medical Theoretical Center of the TU Dresden was next in 2000. The Max-Bergmann Center for Biomaterials was installed together with the Leibnitz Institute for Polymer research at the TU Dresden in 2002. Collectively, these institutes now form part of the Biopolis Dresden, a location for modern life sciences situated in Johannstadt in the heart of Dresden. The opening of the BIOTEChnology Center of the TU Dresden in 2004 gave the Biopolis an additional boost.

Interdisciplinary work within the internationally outstanding research centers of Biopolis Dresden has made it one of the world?s best locations for biotechnology and biomedicine. The quality of its research is reflected by numerous publications in leading journals plus a series of national and international awards.
