General information

A joint EMBRIC-DZIF Expert Workshop
Hosted by the Leibniz Institute DSMZ–German Collection of Microorganisms and Cell Cultures

Goal: The goal of the workshop is to discuss existing concepts and future improvements for the cultivation of novel types of microorganisms, their future significance as a source of novel molecules, and to  generate new implementable ideas for existing and upcoming joint research activities.

Background: The workshop is co-funded by the German Center for Infection Research (DZIF) and the EU Horizon 2020 European Marine Biological Research Infrastructure Cluster (EMBRIC). The EU project EMBRIC aims to improve the scientific discovery and innovation process from marine bioresource cultivation through  to  application by establishing or improving multidisciplinary technological workflows, scientific training, and knowledge transfer. In a complementary fashion, DZIF aims to align translational infection research to develop new diagnostic, preventative and therapeutic methods for treating infectious
diseases. One of DZIF’s objectives is to link infection research and small molecule libraries through the development of new applications and usages of known or new strains and the host of the workshop, DSMZ, maintains the pathogen and microbiome repository for all DZIF partners.
