The three research institutes affiliated with the Faculty of Bioscience Engineering :
Understanding the fundamental dynamics of the earth-life system on every scale and designing sustainable solutions to meet the major challenges facing our societies – these are the two goals of the Earth and Life Institute.
The living world is full of mysteries. As researchers, we aspire to solve them and thus advance move forward the frontiers of knowledge. To explain life, whatever the organism – animal, plant, or microorganism – we need to understand what happens at the molecular and cellular levels.
The institute’s focus is condensed matter, from molecules to materials. Research pertains to the synthesis, development, manipulation, modelling and application of (bio)molecules and solid materials.
