Our mission as research center: Discover personalized medical solutions for environmentally triggered diseases to promote a healthier society in a rapidly changing world.

The Paul Langerhans Institute Dresden (PLID) is a satellite institute of Helmholtz Munich at the University Hospital and Faculty of Medicine “Carl Gustav Carus” of TU Dresden and founding partner of the German Center for Diabetes Research (DZD), which is funded by the German Ministry for Education and Research (BMBF). The DZD itself combines experts from all areas of diabetes research, so that basic research, epidemiology, translational research and clinical application deeply interconnect. Research focus of the PLID is the production and protection of the pancreatic islet beta cells for the prevention and therapy of all forms of diabetes.

Due to the extensive use of Next Generation Sequencing (NGS) based technologies, there is a close collaboration with the DRESDEN-concept Genome Center (DcGC), one of four NGS competence centers of the German Research Council (DFG). Our institute in Dresden is looking from June 1, 2022 for a highly motivated
