The Helmholtz Pioneer Campus
HPC is an innovation campus with a startup culture at the Helmholtz Zentrum München. HPC stands for the intelligent fusion of biomedical sciences, engineering and digitization in a research environment that has no parallel in Europe. Helmholtz Pioneers pave the way for tomorrow’s biomedical breakthroughs. Teams of top scientific talents from all over the world work together on the development of novel solutions that make a difference in the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of diseases. HPC gets its name from Hermann von Helmholtz (1821- 1894), a physician and physicist, polymath and science pioneer. HPC aspires to the research excellence Helmholtz embodies.
The Helmholtz Pioneer Campus enables breakthrough discoveries through innovative, interdisciplinary research.
The Helmholtz Pioneer Campus accentuates the technology-, basic discovery- and translational ambitions at the Helmholtz Zentrum München by empowering exceptional talents from different disciplines to transform their best ideas into novel solutions that impact personalized prevention, early diagnosis, and individual treatment of urgent medical needs.
We are Pioneers
HPC Principal Investigators are outstanding scientists with a proven track record in their respective fields and the ambition to make a difference in biomedicine, harnessing engineering and informatics tools. They are interdisciplinary by nature, highly collaborative, and committed to drive a globally competitive research program.
'Progress in science depends on new techniques, new discoveries and new ideas, probably in that order.'
