Our management and project teams are regularly represented at events and report there about BioMed X and our ongoing research.
For us at BioMed X, publishing the results of our research projects in peer-reviewed journals is key. We also share results at national and international meetings and workshops. We think this is vital to building collaborations and stimulating cross-fertilization of ideas and methods.
At the BioMed X Institute, we are working with different state-of-the-art research tools and methods, emerging from the different research projects. As a Special Interest Group, we continuously grow our internal spectrum of laboratory tools and methods.
Fellowships at BioMed X are limited to a defined project term. During this period, all fellows focus their attention on biomedical research as well as personal growth in order to get ready for their next big challenge in academia, industry or a startup. The Special Interest Group “Career Development” is a grassroots initiative of BioMed X fellows organizing events and training courses.

Completed Projects · Oncology Team IMT Immunosuppressive Microenvironment of Tumors Solid tumors are complex microenvironments composed of cancer and immune cells that interact through various regulatory networks. Although CD8 T-cells may recognize and kill tumor cells, their function is impaired by cells such as regulatory T-cells, tumor-associated macrophages (TAM), and myeloid-derived suppresso …
Completed Projects · Oncology Team SKI Selective Kinase Inhibitors Protein kinases have been a major target of drug discovery programs for many years due to their central roles in signaling pathways involved in the formation and progression of human cancer, inflammation and Alzheimer’s disease. Most kinase inhibitors that are currently approved and in development bind to the highly conserved ATP-b …
Completed Projects · Oncology Team MSC Metabolism and Signaling in Cancer Owing to stressful microenvironments and the accumulation of mutations favoring adaption, cancer cells frequently show alterations in metabolic and other signaling circuits compared with normal cells. As a consequence, cancer cells show increased dependence on certain proteins or stress-support pathways, which themselves mig …
