The "Hamburg Region" merges a unique array of expertise and infrastructure for research on infectious diseases and emerging infections of national and global relevance. It contributes clinical, entomological and virological studies, medicinal chemistry for drug discovery, the epidemiology of malaria, and translational studies on tuberculosis and viral hepatitis. The "Hamburg Region" comprises the University of Hamburg with the University Medical Centre Hamburg-Eppendorf (UKE) and the University of Lübeck, as well as the Leibniz institutes Research Center Borstel (FZB), Heinrich Pette Institute for Experimental Virology (HPI) and Bernhard Nocht Institute for Tropical Medicine (BNI).
