Research infrastructure

This CRC 1286 builds on extensive infrastructure that has been built over the last decade by many institutions, ranging from the Excellence Initiative to measures promoted by the German Research Foundation (DFG), the German Ministry for Education and Research (BMBF), the Max Planck Society, and the State of Lower Saxony.

Important infrastructure resources are, for example, the different imaging facilities. These include the facility of the Max Planck Institute for Biophysical Chemistry, focused on super-resolution microscopy, which has been established within the frame of the DFG-supported Center for Nanoscale Microscopy and Molecular Physiology of the Brain / Cluster of Excellence 171 (CNMPB). Another important imaging facility is the one of the Max Planck Institute for Experimental Medicine, equipped with excellent electron microscopy devices, including a recently installed ion beam milling setup. Proteomics and transcriptomics facilities are available at these two Max Planck Institutes and at the School of Medicine. Finally, major computational resources are provided by the GWDG and the Max Planck Institute for Dynamics and Self-Organization.

In addition to these resources, a building hosting two new institutes opened in September 2016 and serves as a strong basis for our CRC. The DZNE-Göttingen center is only half of this major effort for the progress of neuroscience in Göttingen. The other half is the Biostructural Imaging of Neurodegeneration (BIN) institute. The building, shared equally by the DZNE and the BIN, was funded by the State of Lower Saxony, together with the School of Medicine, and is now operational.
The BIN institute focuses on the visualization of neurologically-relevant proteins, especially in the super-resolution domain. The focus of the institute has been, from its initial conception in 2007, on fundamental neuronal and synaptic research, with a potential for translational research. The coupling with the DZNE institute has been designed to enhance the translational aspect, since the DZNE is far more strongly focused on clinically-relevant research, especially on neurodegenerative diseases.
