Fundamental biological discoveries are often driven by technological advances. The Biotechnology Center (BIOTEC) was founded in 2000 and is now one of the three institutes of the central scientific unit Center for Molecular and Cellular Bioengineering (CMCB) and plays a central role in the Health Sciences, Biomedicine and Bioengineering profile of the TU Dresden. The BIOTEC is an interdisciplinary research center that develops innovative technologies driving the progress of modern life sciences in the areas of molecular cell and developmental biology, physical biology, and computational biology. This synergy between technology development and basic research drives the sustained success of basic, applied, and translational research at the BIOTEC and the CMCB, the wider TU Dresden campus and DRESDEN-concept partners. State-of-the-art technologies are made available via facilities of the CMCB Technology Platform and innovative discoveries are spun-out into commercial enterprises. The BIOTEC offers teaching via international Masters courses and PhD research to train future scientists in its core research disciplines. The BIOTEC is also the hub of the Physics of Life Excellence Cluster Proposal of the TU Dresden.
