Faculty of Mathematics, Informatics and Natural Sciences (MIN) at the Universität Hamburg
The Institute's cooperation with the Faculty of Mathematics, Informatics and Natural Sciences (MIN) at Universität Hamburg (UHH) has intensified fundamentally in recent years. This was urgently needed because for years over 80% of the Institute's doctoral students have been doing their doctorates in MIN subjects, predominantly biology. First of all, a new cooperation agreement was concluded with the UHH in 2014. Another special milestone in 2014 was the joint establishment and endowment of a W3 professorship in "Cellular Parasitology" (Gilberger), which links the BNITM and the MIN faculty and also forms a bridge for both institutions to the "Centre for Structural Systems Biology" (CSSB) at the German Electron Synchrotron (DESY). Furthermore, the now extremely close cooperation continued in 2015/2016 with the filling of the W2 professorships for Arbovirology (Schmidt Chanasit) and Medical Entomology (Schnettler).
In any case, one BNITM staff member is an associate professor (Prof. Dr. I. Bruchhaus) and two BNITM staff members are private lecturers at the MIN Faculty of the UHH. A large part of the teaching in cell and molecular biology of the Master's programme in Biology is held in courses and modules lasting several weeks at the BNITM.
