Your Participation

Our Research

HPC Principal Investigators are outstanding scientists with a proven track record in their respective fields and the ambition to make a difference in biomedicine, harnessing engineering and informatics tools. They are interdisciplinary by nature, highly collaborative, and committed to drive a globally competitive research program.

Biomedicine

HPC scientists work towards a comprehensive and systems-level understanding of human physiology to revolutionize future diagnostics and therapies.

Bioengineering

HPC scientists employ modern bioengineering principles and aim to develop new techniques and tools for trail-blazing applications in biological systems.

Biomedical AI

HPC scientists embrace information technologies to transform biomedical discovery and empower a revolution in healthcare.

Pioneer Campus Podcast Series

Episode 1: “Obesity is a brain disease.”
A conversation with Matthias Tschöp.

Mathias Tschöp is a physician, a scientist, and the Chief Executive Officer of Helmholtz Munich. Tschöp is the rare scientist who can look back on a road that started with basic research in mice and led up to new therapies for patients, revolutionizing the treatment of obesity.

Episode 2: "Cell identity is generated from the epigenetic interpretation of the genome.”
Conversations with Maria Elena Torres-Padilla, Boyan Bonev and Wolf Reik.

Helmholtz Pioneer Campus researchers Maria Elena Torres-Padilla and Boyan Bonev discuss how the organism uses the same epigenetic toolkit to perform tasks as diverse as maintaining the totipotency of stem cells and differentiating cortical neurons. Wolf Reik discovered some of the first molecular mechanisms responsible for epigenetic imprinting of the genome.

Episode 3: “The Health Engineers”
Conversations with Vasilis Ntziachristos, Janna Nawroth, and Nimmi Ramanujam

Helmholtz Pioneer Campus researchers Vasilis Ntziachristos and Janna Nawroth represent complementary branches of bioengineering: Nawroth mines basic research on the structure & function of organisms to develop novel technology; Ntziachristos applies his engineering know-how and approaches to create new solutions for biomedical problems. We also spoke with Duke University’s Nimmi Ramanujam about bringing bioengineering advances to bear on the needs of marginalized or economically disadvantaged communities. All three researchers gave their perspectives on recruiting and training the next generation of bioengineers.
