Promotion of science and research
Biotest actively participates in the education of future scientists. Cooperative arrangements are in place throughout Germany (including in Frankfurt, Darmstadt, Mainz, Giessen, and Wismar), with a focus on the Rhine-Main region, to complete bachelor, master and doctoral degrees in the company. A particulary, close collaboration ismaintained with Frankfurt University, for example for graduate students in DFG-supported (Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft) research training groups.
Employees in the company directly participate in scientific lectures, in either of events on location at Biotest or at lectures and seminars presenting practical case experience and sharing their expertise with current and future scientists.
Biotest supports specific scientific activities for student education with donations for example to the Frankfurter Pharmazieschule e.V. (Frankfurt Pharmacy School) association, and various advanced or continuing education programmes for physicians such as the Frankfurter Medizinische Gesellschaft (Frankfurt Medical Society).
There is dynamic ongoing intellectual discussion between various academic research institutes and Biotest in the framework of national and international scientific organisations. Good examples of such associations are the CI3 Excellence Cluster for individualised immune interventions, the Neu² specialist consortium for new treatments for neurological diseases, and the K1 Comet Cluster CBmed, which explores new biomarkers.
