Junior Groups

We aim to have filled dozens of key posts for the translational research commons by 2026, from BIH chairs to BIH professorships and junior group leaders. Junior group leaders will be promising scientists in an early stage of their careers who can be expected to earn an international reputation.

The first group leader Birte Kehr joined BIH in November 2016 for a new junior group leader Bioinformatics. Read more about her work and experience here.
