Centre for Structural Systems Biology (CSSB)

The research vision of CSSB is on infection biology and medicine using structural biology, molecular and cellular imaging methods as well as systems biology oriented research tools. Our ultimate vision is to unravel the mechanisms of important pathogenic processes to find better treatments against bacterial and viral pathogens. To achieve this goal, CSSB uses the world-class research infrastructures on the DESY campus.

CSSB is a joint initiative of nine research partners from Northern Germany, including three universities and six research institutes. We strive to become a leading research center of international standing in the Hamburg metropolitan area.
