How to get there

Via Taxi
It is easy to get a taxi nearly anywhere in Frankfurt, they are clearly noticeable and are yellow. Fares amount to roughly 10 Euro from the main station to the institute/city centre, 20 Euro from the main station to Sachsenhausen, 50 Euro from the airport to the intstitute/Sachsenhausen.

Via Public transport
A single ride "Einzelfahrt" in Frankfurt costs 2.60 Euro and the ticket is valid for  tram, bus, underground and "S-bahn" (local fast train) services. The ticket should be bought before boarding. At the main station (Frankfurt Hauptbahnhof) and airport there are new vending machines where you can pay your ticket with a debit card; at other stops there might be machines accepting cash only (coins and bills up to 10 Euro). If you travel to or from the airport, you need to make sure your ticket includes the airport: "Einzelfahrt + Flughafen" (usually indicated with the sign of an airplane); a single ride in Frankfurt including the airport costs 4.25 Euro.

From the airport
At Frankfurt Airport, take the "S-Bahn" (marked by a green S in a white circle). Any S-Bahn travelling from Frankfurt Airport via "Hauptbahnhof" is fine. Leave the S-Bahn at the stop "Niederrad" and change to tram No 12 heading for "Fechenheim / Hugo-Junkers-Strasse". Get off at "Heinrich-Hoffmann-Straße/Blutspendedienst" (duration: 17 minutes).

Tramstops are located directly opposite the main entrance of the station building. Take the tram to Niederrad No 21 heading for "Oberforsthaus" or "Stadion" or the tram No 12 heading for "Schwanheim". Get off at the 5th stop "Heinrich-Hoffmann-Straße/Blutspendedienst" (announced on the tram) (duration: 9 minutes).
