About us

The Institute of Medicinal Chemistry was founded in 2016 in cooperation with the Leibniz University of Hannover as a satellite institute of the Helmholtz Centre Munich with the goal of being able to translate the biological research of the centre into chemical space thus enabling translational approaches to clinical drug research.

Due to the strong organic chemical orientation the institute is situated mainly at the Institute of Organic Chemistry (OCI) and the Biomolecular Drug Research Centre (BMWZ) at the Leibniz University Hannover. It contains two professorships: medicinal chemistry (W3) and Cell Based Drug Development (W2; tbd).
