The head office of the Munich School of Bioengineering is located in the former IMETUM building at the TUM Campus in Garching. The building includes office space used by the administration of the MSB and by several research groups, a lecture hall that seats an audience of 80, as well as laboratories and workshops. A spacious hall provides space for poster presentations and various events.


The laboratories are equipped with facilities for research in molecular biology, cell biology and for developing new biomedical technology including a set of electron microscopes, MRI scanners and X-ray devices.

Munich Compact Light Source

The building of the Munich School of BioEngineering is also home to the Munich Compact Light Source (MuCLS) – a world-wide unique accelerator facility that produces high-brilliance X-rays while taking up a volume of only 5 by 3 by 2 meters. It is currently mainly used for research on new imaging methods for diagnosing medical conditions such as cancer or pulmonary diseases.

Related Labs

The commitment of the Technical University of Munich to bioengineering and related fields also shows in new research centers dedicated to molecular biology, proteomics or cancer research that have been set up over the past few years. A new center for protein research is under construction. All these institutions are headed by Principal Investigators of the MSB.
