Helmholtz Diabetes Center

A Catalyst for Curbing the Diabetes Epidemic in Germany

The Helmholtz Diabetes Center at the Helmholtz Zentrum München considers diabetes as a genetically and environmentally influenced system. New approaches to therapy, prevention and diagnosis are explored by focusing on translational research and clinical projects, on molecular mechanisms of diabetes genesis as well as on system biology and modeling. HDR designed this multi-disciplinary bioscience research center to efficiently accommodate lab structures and offices, interspersed by various communicative areas. An impressive internal open space thoroughfare connects all levels, fostering interaction, collaboration and communication. The building also features modular laboratories and future-oriented connections to other institutes on the campus.
