Centre for Structural Systems Biology (CSSB)

The CSSB devotes itself to infection biology and medicine by utilizing structural and molecular biology methods and imaging techniques in conjunction with systems biology approaches. Our purpose is to unravel the underlying mechanisms of important pathogenic processes in order to discover more effective treatment options 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 endeavor to become a leading international research centre in the city of Hamburg.
