- University Spital Basel, Spitalstrasse 21
The Department of Biomedicine was founded in the year 2000, with the idea to create a department that unites the entire laboratory research of the Faculty of Medicine. The founding members were the University of Basel, the University Hospital Basel, and the University Children’s Hospital Basel. The intention was to abolish the barriers and intensify the interactions between the “pre-clinical” and “clinical” research units and to promote excellence in bio-medical research. Research at the DBM focuses on 4 focal areas: Oncology, Immunology, Neurobiology and Stem Cells and Regenerative Medicine. By providing a bridge between basic science and clinical medicine, the Department of Biomedicine is an important component in the University of Basel’s strategic plan for Life Sciences.
Research at DBM is performed in different institutes, among which the University Hospital Basel (above).
