Department 14: Biochemistry, Chemistry and Pharmacy
In the department of Biochemistry, Chemistry and Pharmacy, 32 professors are involved in research and teaching. They are supported by 215 permanent members of staff and are involved in teaching for more than 1.850 undergraduate and 500 PhD students and postdoctoral fellows in four different subjects: Pharmacy, Chemistry and Biochemistry.
The department is located at the Campus Riedberg of the Johann Wolfgang Goethe-University in the North of Frankfurt, in direct neighbourhood to the departments of Biological Science, Physics, Geosciences, the Frankfurt Institute for Advanced Studies (FIAS) and the Max-Planck-Institutes for biophysics and brain research. In August 2011 the new building for the department of Biology and a building for the Cluster of Excellence Frankfurt Macromolecular Complexes were completed.
In addition, a biotechnology incubator, the Frankfurt Centre for Innovation (FIZ) supports the knowledge transfer between fundamental research and new business. Part of the research in the department is organized in interdisciplinary research centres such as the BMRZ, the CMP, the CSC and ZAFES. Members of the department participate in two programme grants (SFB) and one research group. In addition, two graduate programmes and two graduate schools support the education for PhD students.
The department hosts two Lichtenberg Professorships (Prof. Güntert, Prof. Grininger), one Heisenberg Professorship (Prof. Gottschalk) and three Emmy-Noether-Groups (Dr. Björn Corzilius, JunProf. Ernst and Dr. Schäfer).
Regarding the Cluster of Excellence Frankfurt Macromolecular Complexes, the department is significantly involved: two Juniorprofessors (JunProf. Geertsma and JunProf. Morgner), eleven of the principal investigators, one adjunct investigator and the speaker belong to our department.
A principal investigator is also involved in the Excellence Cluster Cardio-Pulmonary System.
