Mission Statement

Our Mission

The mission of the Department of Biomedicine (DBM) at the University of Basel is to promote integrated research excellence in biomedical science. We emphasize research in neurobiology, infection and immunity, cancer, and stem cell biology and regenerative medicine. The DBM provides a stimulating environment with state-of-the-art facilities, enabling biomedical research of the highest quality, while also training the next generation of leaders in basic and clinical research. Central to our mission, non-clinical and clinical scientists work side by side to foster a translational environment across all of our disease-relevant scientific themes, benefiting the lives of patients in areas of unmet need.
