The Center for Systems Biology Dresden (CSBD) is an initiative of the Max-Planck Society in collaboration with the Technische Universität Dresden (TUD), one of the eleven German Excellence Universities. It was started in 2010 by the Max Planck Institute of Molecular Cell Biology and Genetics (MPI-CBG) and the Max Planck Institute for the Physics of Complex Systems (MPI-PKS) with the generous support of the Saxon State Ministry for Higher Education, Research and the Arts, the Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF), and the Klaus Tschira Foundation.
In recent years Dresden has developed at a tremendous pace into one of the leading scientific centers in Europe. Dresden is characterized by a vibrant international community of researchers that perform cross-disciplinary research at the highest level in state-of-the-art research centers at the 24 member institutions of the unique research alliance Dresden Concept e.V.
Dresden is considered one of the most beautiful cities of Germany. It is located in the east of Germany in the valley of the river Elbe. Dresden is about 90 minutes away from Berlin as well as Prague. Being the capital of Saxony it has been a center of political and cultural life for centuries, and its skyline with the Zwinger, the Green Vault, the Painting Gallery, the castle, the Semper Opera, the Court Chapel, Taschenberg Palace, and the recently rebuilt Frauenkirche is world-famous. But the city is not only famous for its baroque architecture and beautiful surrounding landscapes. Dresden has evolved into a vivid and international scientific and industrial center and is one of the most outstanding locations for research and science in Germany with emphasis on the life sciences, computer science, nano-technology, and microelectronics. In appreciation of this dynamic development, Dresden has been awarded the “City of Science” in 2006.
