About Kiel Life Science (KLS)


Response to environmental influences

Taking the environmental influences into consideration opens up new perspectives for the transition between health and illness. "We want to understand physiologically healthy and pathological processes of organisms in an overall context, and to identify new options for prevention and therapy. In the long term, this should help us to achieve measurable progress in healthcare provision," explains KLS spokesman Professor Thomas Bosch from the Institute of Zoology. The projects within the interdisciplinary framework can also be used to develop new approaches, which will make it possible to produce food in a resources-conserving manner.

Excellent basis

At Kiel University, KLS bundles the expertise from the disciplines of bioinformatics, environmental genetics, agricultural sciences, evolutionary biology and genetic research, plant breeding and animal husbandry, food sciences and evolutionary medicine. The participating research groups are well networked beyond the boundaries of the disciplines and institutes. KLS can take full advantage of the excellent technological infrastructure built up in recent years. One excellence cluster, various special research areas and DFG focus programs, as well as an international Max Planck Research School, form the core of KLS. The research spectrum ranges from large-scale genetic research ("Big Data") and proteomics, right up to research into phenotype systems.
