The Department for BioMedical Research (DBMR) of the Faculty of Medicine of the University of Bern, led by Prof. Mark A. Rubin, MD, was established in 1994 by the University of Bern and the Inselspital (Bern University Hospital). The DBMR is divided in 13 Research Programs with about 100 participating individual labs and several Independent Research Labs whose research spans across all biomedical fields. To realize its mission to bridge the gap between bench and bedside, the DBMR promotes an integrative perspective to clinical research with a strong emphasis in the development of translational approaches, the use of omics and other cutting-edge technologies, and extensive interaction and collaboration between laboratory-based and patient-oriented clinical research. The DBMR is also committed to fostering the careers of young academics.
The DBMR informs employees about current measures in connection with the Coronavirus. The information is updated on an ongoing basis, most recently on September 01.
Congratulations! The Best Poster Award at the 2nd AACR-KCA Joint Conference on Precision Medicine in Solid Tumors, which was held on November 12, 2021 goes to Liana Hayrapetyan, Program Translational Cancer Research, Medova Lab.
Congratulations to our researchers, who are again among the world's most cited in medicine.
An international team led by Researchers from the DBMR and Inselspital show how the intestinal immune system specifically recognizes our commensal bacteria and how IgA constrains microbial fitness in the intestine. The findings expand our fundamental understanding of mucosal antibody responses and how we keep homeostasis between the host and its microbiota.
We are happy to inform you that orders through the Thermo Fisher Supply Center can again be shipped to the DBMR Supply Center, so that you don’t have to pay for shipping costs and extras such as dry ice.
For the moment, please still use your old account information, the group account will only be necessary once the new store is up and running.
For items from other vendors please see the updated list below.

Researchers at the University of Bern led an international team that has identified a novel vulnerability in advanced prostate cancer that is no longer responding to hormonal therapy. These findings could lead to the development of new treatment approaches for men suffering from the most aggressive form of prostate cancer.
Congratulations to Dr Marianna Kruithof-de-Julio and Prof. Mark Rubin, DBMR, on their 3Rs project award. With this 3RCC funding they will develop a platform for GU cancer patient-derived organoids.
