The new building of the Center for Integrative Infectious Disease Research (CIID) of Heidelberg University is celebrating its house-raising today, November 30th. The CIID will be at the campus Im Neuenheimer Feld, right next to the Theoretikum of the medical faculty and the Center for Infectious Diseases of the Heidelberg University Hospital. The CIID will add the Theoretikum and is supposed to be finished in the first quarter of 2017.

The design by Gerber Architekten adjusts itself with its form, size, colour and roof shape as “capstone” into the ensemble of the Theoretikum without loosing its solitare character.
