About us

The identification and functional characterization of genes related to disease are at the heart of the research carried out at the Institute of Human Genetics. Mapping techniques are applied in search of disease associated gene variants. Research groups focus are  endocrine (Tim M. Strom), cardiac (Thomas Meitinger), neurological (Juliane Winkelmann) and mitochondrial disorders (Holger Prokisch). They use the spectrum of platforms including next generation sequencing, metabolomics, proteomics and mouse models in close collaboration with other institutes at the Helmholtz Zentrum München.

Research activities at the institute are carried out as part of the SAM Program. Projects are funded by the Helmholtz Association, the Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF), the German Research Foundation (DFG), and the European Union.
