Groundbreaking Ceremony

With numerous supporters, cooperation partners and companions, the Helmholtz Institute for RNA-based Infection Research (HIRI) Würzburg celebrated its groundbreaking ceremony on July 6. The institute, a site of the Braunschweig Helmholtz Centre for Infection Research (HZI) founded in 2017 in cooperation with the Julius-Maximilians-Universität (JMU) in the city on the River Main, will have its own building on the Würzburg medical campus. The project is being realized with funds from the Free State of Bavaria, represented by the Bavarian State Ministry of Economic Affairs, Regional Development and Energy, and co-financed by the European Union. In his address, Bavaria's Minister President Markus Söder emphasized the relevance of research funding for the Free State's strategy for the future.
