Rudolf Virchow Center for Integrative and Translational Bioimaging

Zimmer Group

We are pleased that we were able to attract Prof. Christophe Zimmer as part of the Bavarian Top Professors Program. He will start his work at the Rudolf Virchow Center in January 2024:


Future research

Our new interdisciplinary laboratory will combine advanced imaging and artificial intelligence (AI) to push back technical barriers to life science research and directly address some important biomedical questions.

Job opportunities!

If you are interested in joining our lab and have a strong background in microscopy, AI, biophysics, cell biology, microbiology or related fields, please see our job announcements here
