Innovative, interdisciplinary, international: These three words summarize what makes the University of Tübingen special. Excellent research and teaching are Tübingen’s answer to the challenges of the future in a globalized world. We maintain exchanges with partners around the globe - both at institutions of higher education and at non-university research institutions. Networks and cooperation across faculty and subject boundaries are the pillars of our successful strategy. This is reflected in our good position in international rankings. In addition, we are one of the eleven German universities distinguished with the title of “excellent.”

Within EDCMET, the Drug Design research group at Internal Medicine VIII will be engaged in molecular modeling and molecular dynamics simulations of different endocrine protein targets, especially nuclear receptors. The research group, lead by guest professor Antti Poso, will use novel computational methods to allow more precise evaluation and predictions of atomistic interactions between human proteins and potentially harmful compounds. The final aim is to develop better and more accurate ways to predict biological activity of organic compounds.
