Welcome to the Collaborative Research Centre
(Sonderforschungsbereich) SFB 593:
"Mechanisms of cellular
compartmentalisation and the relevance for disease"
The Collaborative Research Centre 593 integrates 17 groups from
Philipps Universität Marburg (Faculties of Medicine, Biology and
Pharmacy) and the Max-Planck Institute for Terrestrial Microbiology.
The scientific aim of the SFB 593 is to elucidate the molecular
mechanisms of cellular compartmentalization processes in eukaryotic
cells. Since many of the studied processes are of relevance for
disease, a particular research focus is on the investigation of
pathogenic alterations of these processes.
The SFB 593 was established by the German Research Foundation (Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft/DFG) in Jan. 2003. After two successful renewal applications, the SFB is now in its third and final funding period (ending Dec. 2014).
