About the CBTM

The Center of Biomedicine and Medical Technology Mannheim (CBTM) was established in early 2007 as the preclinical institute responsible for research and teaching in Anatomy, Biochemistry and Physiology. Instead of establishing separate institutes, the Medical Faculty Mannheim decided deliberately to merge the eight preclinical departments together with three theoretical-clinical departments within the CBTM, thereby fostering basic and translational biomedical research in Mannheim.

On November the 10th the CBTM celebrates its 10th anniversary with a scientific symposium. The day features keynote speakers and presentations of ongoing research at the CBTM.
