The Goethe University in Frankfurt am Main is currently in the process of completing its re-structuring of the life sciences departments. The Riedberg Campus currently houses the Physics, Chemistry, Biology, and Biochemistry departments. In addition, it houses the MPIs for Biophysics and Brain Research as well as the Frankfurt Institute for Advanced Studies (FIAS). By the end of 2011, the Buchmann Institute for Molecular Life Sciences (BMLS) had been completed, which houses most groups of the Cluster of Excellence Macromolecular Complexes (CEF-MC).
The University of Frankfurt has and will continue to devote space, positions and financial resources to several core facilities of crucial importance for the life sciences community, among those are the Biomolecular Magnetic Resonance Center Frankfurt (BMRZ) and the Advanced Light Microscopy Center (FCAM) which is mainly located within the BMLS.
