MBExC is a research center of the University of Goettingen and the University Medical Center Goettingen and pursues a novel research approach linking photonics, molecular biosciences, neuroscience and cardiovascular research.

The goal of the MBExC is to decipher disease-relevant nanoscale functional units in neurons, sensory cells and cardiomyocytes and to develop innovative therapeutic strategies for disorders affecting the heart, the brain, or both. By a multiscale approach the MBExC will uncover fundamental biological principles at increasing levels of complexity from molecular, nanoscale to network and organ levels. The MBExC research program covers gene expression and regulation, protein assembly and targeting, Ca2+ signaling and Ca2+ triggered membrane fusion as well as the development of innovative research techniques.

The MBExC relies on a close interdisciplinary collaboration between the University Medical Center Goettingen the faculties of Chemistry, Physics, Mathematics and Biology of the University and the non-university research institutions in Goettingen, such as the German Centre for Cardiovascular Research e.V.
