Helmholtz Zentrum München is a research center with the mission to discover personalized medical solutions for the prevention and therapy of environmentally triggered diseases and promote a healthier society in a rapidly changing world.

At our institute you will find a scientifically stimulating international environment. Together with renowned scientists and supported by an excellent infrastructure you will have the opportunity to make an important contribution for a healthier society.

The Department of Molecular Epidemiology (AME) in the Institute of Epidemiology analyzes biosamples from population-based cohorts and case studies for specific diseases using genomics, epigenomics, transcriptomics, proteomics, metabolomics and functional analyzes. The aim is to elucidate the molecular mechanisms of complex diseases such as type 2 diabetes or obesity. The department runs the epidemiolocigal biobank and is responsible for sample management and storage for national and international projects.

In one of these projects, the German Center for Infection Research (DZIF), more than 500 doctors and scientists from 35 institutions are working together on new methods for the prevention, diagnosis and therapy of infectious diseases. With the synergistic network of universities, clinics and research institutes, an infrastructure that is unique in the world has been created. Their goal is translation - the effective transfer of research results to the clinic and vice versa: the influence of findings from the clinic on research.

The AME-Biobank working group, together with Heidelberg University, is responsible for the biobanking infrastructure unit in DZIF. In this context, we are part of the Biodata, Bioressources & Digital Health (TI BBD) infrastructure and offer services and support for scientists at the DZIF on, among other things, biobank-related topics. We are looking for support for our new tasks within the TI BBD:
