The Biocenter is a Department where Innsbruck Medical University has put together scientists with different experiences, working with different genetic model organisms or biochemical systems but with the common goal to contribute as much as possible to a molecular understanding of diseases. Innsbruck has a unique campus structure where the research institutes of both Universities are centered around the University hospital. This fosters medically relevant research and provides the grounds for developing personalized medicine in Innsbruck. The Bioenter is also the nucleation point and main contributor of such recently established strategies such as the special research project SFB021 “Cell Proliferation and Cell Death in Tumors”, the international graduate program in “Molecular Cell Biology and Oncology” (MCBO) or the “k1” Competence Center for Personalized Medicine, ONCOTYROL. In the last seven years, the Biocenter has become a visible landmark within biomedical research in Austria and was also internationally recognized, as can be seen by the successful participation in and the coordination of several large EU projects (e.g. GROWTHSTOP) as well as nationally funded research consortia (e.g. Austrian Proteomics Platform, non-coding RNA Platform, GEN-AU). The Biocenter is proud off its talented young scientists. Besides many research prizes our scientists received, the Biocenter harbors four winners of the START prize, i.e. Alexandra Lusser, Norbert Polacek, Andreas Villunger and David Teis, which is the most prestigious distinction for young scientists in Austria.  More Information can be found at http://biocenter.i-med.ac.at/
