Exploring heart & brain

MBExC

Multiscale Bioimaging (MBExC) is a Cluster of Excellence of the University of Göttingen, Germany and is funded by the German Federal Government and the Länder (federal states) since 2019.
Our goal is to understand the structural and functional properties of excitable cells in the heart and brain across multiple length scales in order to decipher disease-relevant, nanoscale functional units in heart and nerve cells. We develop and apply innovative technologies and translate new insights into novel therapies for disorders affecting the heart, the brain, or both.


Hertha Sponer College

Multiscale integrative research provides unique opportunities to promote cutting-edge, interdisciplinary training of early career researchers. The Hertha Sponer College targets particularly talented students and early career researchers to spark and foster enthusiasm for research at the boundary of the natural sciences and biomedicine, and to accompany a new generation of future research leaders on their way towards early scientific independence.

Science & Society

Communicating scientific findings to the local, regional, national, and international public, and raising awareness about integrative research and topics of MBExC is of major importance for us and society. Here we engage in dialogue with the public promoting interest and confidence in science.
