Today’s challenges – Tomorrow's research and teaching

The 21st century faces numerous challenges: global warming, population explosion, food security and dwindling fossil fuel reserves are the crises of our time. Addressing these challenges will require cutting-edge research – both fundamental and applied. As a discipline encompassing this entire spectrum of issues, from food production to the supply of biogenetic raw materials through to the preservation of livable environments, the life sciences will play a leading role in these efforts.

Waters are more polluted than tests say

Bodies of water are “sinks”, and thereby bind contaminants particularly well. If even slightly toxic concentrations in water are to be detected, the growth and swimming behavior of small crustaceans, mini-snails and copepods...[more]
