The Marsilius Kolleg of Heidelberg University bridges the gap between sciences and humanities through meetings and joint projects, which in turn promotes understanding and cooperation between the sciences and the humanities. Founded in 2007, the Marsilius Kolleg is a central component of Heidelberg’s successful proposal granted by the Excellence Initiative, launched by the federal and state governments of Germany.

Phenex – Translating Science into Medicines
We, at Phenex, are dedicated towards developing novel, breakthrough medicines for the treatment of cancer, liver and gastrointestinal diseases. It is not just about the idea: We pick up ideas from the scientific community and let them compete with own internal approaches. Our goal is: to come up with the best possible drug to treat a so far incurable disease. Beyond the idea it is really about execution – bringing the idea from academic publication towards the patient. This requires time, patience, money and most of all: endurance! In our collaborations with Gilead and Janssen, which yielded two clinical-stage drugs, we have demonstrated that our concept works. We believe in the power of innovation and make it happen – Translating science from bench to bedside! We support Tedx for a free exchange of ideas amongst free spirits.

Studierenden Rat (StuRa)

The „Studierendenrat“ is a student council representing all students of the University of Heidelberg. It works on a federal, equal and directly democratic basis. Both representatives of the individual programs (as for example of American Studies, Geography, Biology) and representatives of university groups form a council that decides over matters concerning all students such as the application of funds or the positioning of the student body in regard of structural changes planned by the university. As a result, not only the vice chancellor will be able to make decisions about future plans, but the students will also have a say in what is happening. This is why it is important for you to go to the elections and to vote for your representatives at the StuRa.
