Center for Medical Biochemistry

Researchers at the Center for Medical Biochemistry conduct basic research in molecular biosciences and medical sciences and pass on their knowledge to students of the Medical University of Vienna in lectures and practical courses. The Center for Medical Biochemistry is closely linked to the research clusters of the Medical University of Vienna and, together with the Center for Molecular Biology of the University of Vienna, is part of the Max Perutz Labs Vienna.

The Max Perutz Labs itself are a joint venture of the University of Vienna and the Medical University of Vienna. The institute conducts outstanding, internationally recognized research and teaching in the field of molecular biology. Scientists at the Max Perutz Labs investigate fundamental, mechanistic processes in biomedicine and combine innovative basic research with medically relevant questions.
The Max Perutz Labs are part of the Vienna BioCenter, a leading hotspot of life sciences in Europe. Around 45 research groups with more than 450 employees from 40 nations are active at the institute.
