7.5M Center for Modeling and Simulation Opens in Heidelberg

NEW YORK, Feb. 13 (GenomeWeb News) - With 7.5 million ($9.6 million) in funding, the Center for Modeling and Simulation in the Life Sciences opened today in Heidelberg, the European Molecular Biology Laboratory said today.


The center was founded by the German Cancer Research Center, EML Research, EMBL, the Max Planck Institute of Medical Research, and the University of Heidelberg. Initially for five years, it will support three research groups run by young scientists, as well as ten postdoctoral fellows, to perform research using modeling and computer simulation of biological systems. The center will initially be housed at three institutes and will move into a new building in 2006.


2.5 million of the funding come from the Klaus Tschira Foundation, which runs EML Research, 2.5 million from the state of Baden-W rttemberg, and 2.5 million from the university and the other institutes.
