Research – Department of Life Sciences
The Department Life Sciences acts as an international academic competence centre of interdisciplinary education and research.
From disease models to drug development
The Department of Life Sciences aims to facilitate communication and interaction between researchers looking at various aspects of applied biomedicine research. We focus on cancer, immune system disorders, toxicology, drug research and the latest bioprocess engineering techniques, to name just a few of our areas of expertise.
The interdisciplinary team is optimally positioned to move rapidly from disease modelling to the identification and development of drugs and lead compounds. Moreover, we have established an international scientific network including universities, research institutes, small and medium-sized enterprises and global pharmaceutical players.
