The Göttingen Campus

The Göttingen location has come to be synonymous with high-quality international research. To ensure that this remains the case in the future, the University of Göttingen, including the University Medical Center, and seven non-university local research centres have joined forces to form the Göttingen Campus.

By drawing on their joint strengths and potential, campus partners have created a unique and stimulating environment that encourages diversity and an active exchange between professors, researchers and doctoral students.

Across the Göttingen Campus, there are currently more than 5,900 researchers working in nearly every scientific discipline.

Within the Göttingen Campus, the quality of teaching and training of early career scientists is assured and continuously improved by joint graduate programmes and inter-institute junior research groups.

Science on campus benefits from excellent joint third-party funded projects and 23 joint professorships between the University and non-university institutions.

  • New theory on autonomous remodeling of structures
    Structures made out of building blocks can shift their shape and autonomously self-organize to a new configuration. The physicists Saeed Osat and Ramin Golestanian from the Max Planck Institute for Dynamics and Self-Organization (MPI-DS) revealed this mechanism which may be used to actively manipulate molecular organization. A seed of the novel desired configuration is sufficient to trigger reorganization. This principle can be applied on to…

  • BA.5-adapted vaccine improves antibody response, but new omicron subvariants still show strong immune escape
    Should I get another booster? And if so, which vaccine should be used? These questions are asked by many citizens who have received the basic immunization consisting of usually three individual vaccine doses. A team of researchers from the German Primate Center – Leibniz Institute for Primate Research in Göttingen and Hannover Medical School studied antibody-mediated neutralization of SARS-CoV-2 variants following a fourth vaccination with…

  • In the Sun's middle corona, a team of researchers discovers web-like dynamic plasma structures – and an important clue as to what mechanism drives the solar wind.
    Using observational data from the U.S. weather satellites GOES, a team of researchers led by the Max Planck Institute for Solar System Research (MPS) in Germany has taken an important step toward unlocking one of the Sun’s most persevering secrets: How does our star launch the particles constituting the solar wind into space? The data provide a unique view of a key region in the solar corona to which researchers have had little access so far.…
