Since its inauguration in January 2019, the Collaborative Research Center (CRC) 1366 “Vascular Control of Organ Function” aims at studying emerging gatekeeper and regulatory functions of organotypically differentiated endothelial cells and other cells of the vessels wall during develop-ment, homeostasis and disease.

The CRC 1366 takes a leading role in the emerging field of “Angioscience” research, i.e., the molecular and functional analysis of vascular control mechanisms of organ function. Considering the involvement of vascular dysfunction in numerous chronic and life-threatening diseases, the better molecular understanding of organotypic vasculatures will lay the scientific foundation to pave the way towards novel angiotargeted therapies to treat hitherto intractable diseases.

The meeting will take place in the Communication Center of the German Cancer Research Center (DKFZ) in Heidelberg (see below). We will try to host the meeting as much as possible as a physical meeting with personal attendance of speakers and participants – in order to stimulate scientific interaction and collaboration. Yet, for the time being, we do not know to what extend we will be able to make this a physical meeting, respectively how many people will be allowed to participate in person (and on which conditions, e.g., record of vaccination, etc.). As such, we plan on a hybrid meeting and will only decide shortly before the meeting whom we can admit in person and who will be assigned to virtual participation.

How to get there?

By tram

At the tram stop (Kurfürstenpassage), which is at the north exit of the Central Station, take tram number 24 with terminus “Handschuhsheim Nord” or tram number 21 with terminus "Hans-Thoma-Platz". Leave either tram at “Jahnstraße”, directly after crossing the Neckar Bridge. After crossing the street walk into “Jahnstraße” and follow the street until the gate on the left-hand side. Pass the gate and walk along “Kirschnerstraße” and about 100 m down the road the DKFZ main building will appear on the right-hand side.

By bus

The bus stop is located directly next to the tram stop (Kurfürstenpassage). Take bus number 32 with terminus “Neuenheimer Feld – Kopfklinik” and get off at the bus stop “Chirurgische Klinik”, directly after passing the gate.


Heidelberg is located about 80 km from “Frankfurt Rhein-Main International Airport” (FRA).

Upon arrival at the Frankfurt Airport, follow the signs to the train station “Fernbahnhof”. From there you can either take a train directly to Heidelberg Central Station or via Mannheim Central Station where you have to change the train.
