Visit by Science Minister Olschowski at Alliance in Heidelberg

The Baden-Württemberg Minister of Science, Petra Olschowski, visited Heidelberg University on May 17, 2024, to find out about current projects in medicine, life sciences and medical technology as part of the Health + Life Science Alliance Heidelberg Mannheim, which is funded as an innovation campus.

Three short public lectures were scheduled for the Minister’s visit, in which scientists provided information about current issues in the life sciences and medicine that the Health + Life Science Alliance Heidelberg Mannheim is seeking to address. Research into pressing scientific issues is being conducted at the Innovation Campus in order to quickly bring new products, drugs or procedures for prevention, diagnostics and therapy into use, said Petra Olschowski.

Science Minister Olschowski also spent time in a so-called Multi-Space Platform at the BioQuant Center at Heidelberg University – a technology platform featuring state-of-the-art equipment. In her remarks Olschowski called the work done by the Alliance a “wonderful beacon of hope” for the entire Rhein-Neckar region.
