Welcome to the COMM

….and to top-class research at the Medical School of the Saarland University.


Established in 2006 the Competence Center Molecular Medicine (COMM) forms a roof structure for about 80 ambitious scientists who are conducting research in the field of Molecular Medicine. Irrespective of the responsibilities of other elements and facilities of the Saarland University, the COMM aims to strengthen the research in the overlapping fields of basic investigations in biomedical sciences, clinical medicine and applied technical developments.
