Disease and treatment
Biomedical and health science research is currently a key topic. Combining basic and clinical research contributes to developing new drugs and therapies that make people healthier and improves their quality of life.
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.
Supercomputers and big data will advance researchers’ knowledge on type 2 diabetes
The brain – more than just a control centre for chemical signals?
Billions and billions of tiny neurons have joined together over millions of years to form what we now call the human brain. Unsurprisingly, this organ harbours some of the most thoroughly explored and yet least known areas of the body. The research includes how the brain sends and receives signals to and from the rest of the body to how tiny chemical changes in the brain can lead to neurodegenerative disorders such as Parkinson’s disease or mental disorders such as schizophrenia.
