This video presents the laboratory building of the University of Freiburg at the Habsburgerstr. 49 in Freiburg. It is the research building of the Cluster of Excellence CIBSS - Centre for Integrative Biological Signalling Studies - and is named after Hilde Mangold, co-discoverer of the famous embryonic “organizer” signalling center. The young scientist Hilde Mangold is a memorable figure in the history of signalling science. One hundred years ago, she had just finished her PhD thesis in Freiburg. Today, her work is seen as one of the most important publications in biology. This video gives an overview of Mangolds life and the research taking place in the building today, featuring interviews with CIBSS researchers Prof. Dr. Anne Classen, Prof.Dr. Björn Lillemeier and Dr. Roland Nitschke.
