UULM, founded in 1967, enjoys an excellent reputation for innovative research and interdisciplinary training. It is part of a strong network of international partnerships, which creates opportunities for students and researchers alike and strengthens the reputation of Ulm as excellent and future-oriented University.
UULM is the newest university in Germany, which has five faculties (Computer Science, Engineering, Mathematics and Economics, Medicine, Natural Sciences) and currently more than 10,000 students. Biomedicine and Biotechnology are the major focus of the university’s research programme. With the help by university network InnoSüd, there is a unique support for technology transfer to small and medium-sized enterprises. Most recently, ERC-Proof of Concept projects by Prof. Jelezko (NDI) und Prof. Kirchhoff (Epi-X4Health) have been founded. These concepts provide a new focus on the use of peptides and technologies to understand immune deviations such as autoimmune dysfunction, and eventually lead to new treatment and disease prevention. Experiences at UULM will be highly useful to transfer to young investigators from the Baltic area. Knowledge transfer will be part of summer school initiatives as well.
