The Biocenter of the University of Wuerzburg

Strong diversity

As an interfaculty research facility, the Biocenter has a broad scientific basis. Multidisciplinary dialogue between scientists and common goals are essential elements of our research.

The Biocenter is a joint facility of the Faculties of Biology, Chemistry and Pharmacy, and the Faculty of Medicine. Its founding concept of bringing scientists from various faculties together under one roof, pioneering at that time, today benefits both students and science itself.

Multidisciplinary dialogue between scientists and common goals are essential elements of our research.

Nisthilfen machen Äcker für Wildbienen attraktiv

Wildbienen sind wichtige Bestäuber vieler Nutzpflanzen – mitunter effektivere als Honigbienen. Ihre Zahl lässt sich mit einfachen Mitteln nachhaltig erhöhen. Das zeigt eine aktuelle Studie an der Universität Würzburg.

New insights into complex processes

The blood-brain barrier is a unique mechanism to shield the brain. Scientists from the University of Würzburg have now uncovered details of how it evolves. This finding offers new chances for modification and regulation.

How circadian clocks communicate with each other

Multiple biological clocks control the daily rhythms of physiology and behavior in animals and humans. Whether and how these clocks are connected with each other is still a largely open question. A new study now shows that a central clock governs...
