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.

Cancer – how can it be killed without killing the person?
When cancer develops in a cell, this triggers the loss of key control mechanisms that would normally lead to the cell dying. As a result, the defective cells do not die and even divide to create more defective cells. Cancer treatment therefore aims to kill the diseased cells while preserving healthy ones. Cancer research is therefore a precision discipline involving constantly learning what differentiates diseased cells from the healthy ones and how to help the body get rid of the diseased ones.
