Translational Lung Research Center Heidelberg

TLRC Organization

The TLRC was established in 2011 to strengthen existing lung research in Heidelberg and to provide optimal support across institutions for the transfer of basic research findings into clinical practice. Laboratories for tissue culture, histology, microscopy, and FACS support research activities across institutions. All 34 TLRC faculty members are also principal investigators in the German Center for Lung Research (Opens external link in new windowDZL). The research programme coordination lies with the Steering Committee.
