"The integration of our diverse disciplines and backgrounds at one location will foster the development of innovative therapeutic approaches," says Professor Ivan Martin, Head of the Department of Biomedicine.

A new building for medical laboratory research on Klingelbergstrasse is scheduled for completion by 2031. The Department of Biomedicine (DBM) currently has about 70 research groups, spread across five sites. The new building will bring them together under one roof. Located in close proximity to the University Hospitals, the Biozentrum and ETH Zurich’s Department of Biosystems Science and Engineering, it will facilitate collaboration in basic and clinical research and simplify the shared use of central technical facilities.
