What´s up at IZB 

Sehr geehrte(r) Frau/Herr Titel ,

Invitris GmbH, led by Dr. Patrick Großmann (CEO) and Dr. Kilian Vogele (CTO), is another dedicated team that has moved into the IZB. We warmly welcome them to our location. Another start-up will soon follow. 

With the participation of the Minister President Dr. Markus Söder, the long-awaited groundbreaking ceremony for the construction of the subway, which will then connect the science location Garching with the IZB in Martinsried, has now taken place. Good things come to those who wait. 

The year has already begun with many interesting events at the IZB. On March 16, 2023, our popular Biotech Press Lounge will take place. We receive new registrations every day. If you still want to be part of it, feel free to register. We look forward to seeing you continue to take advantage of the networking opportunity at IZB.

With best regards


Dr. Peter Hanns Zobel
Managing Director IZB
