Environment and sustainability
Given the increasing global environmental challenges, life science research focuses on the aspects of sustainability that can potentially be translated into biotechnological solutions that benefit people and the environment.
Diet and lifestyle
The human body harbours many molecular explanations for why some people become overweight. Solving the growing problems of metabolic diseases and diabetes requires more knowledge on the influence of what we eat and our lifestyles.
Breaking new ground
Breakthroughs in the natural and technical sciences lead to many discoveries that improve people’s lives. Cross-disciplinarity and collaboration between basic researchers and companies especially create advances in health and sustainable biotechnology.
Genes – should they be changed or left alone?
In biology, a gene is defined as the sequence of small nucleotides that together comprise the DNA or RNA that encodes proteins – the real building blocks of life. The influence of genes has been discussed ever since they were discovered. The questions are many: what is most important – genes or the environment in which we live? Is it acceptable to manipulate genes – the code of life, if the goal is to heal people and provide food for them?
