Life sciences

Life sciences

Without the life sciences, innovations such as eco-friendly detergents, genetic fingerprinting and artificial insemination would be inconceivable. The life sciences emerged as the result of a shift in the biological disciplines – old subject boundaries became blurred and researchers from fields such as biotechnology, molecular biomedicine and engineering began cooperating increasingly on an interdisciplinary basis. Numerous scientists in Germany are working on some fascinating topics in the life sciences. In this edition, we present a number of their projects. You can also read why a materials scientist from the UK conducts her research in Germany, learn about current funding programmes and discover our number of the month.

200 years of the bicycle

Two wheels, a saddle, handlebars and pedals – it all sounds straightforward enough, but actually this is a combination that took quite some time to perfect. Nowadays it is hard to imagine life in Germany without bicycles, the world’s most widespread means of transport. We take a look at the history of this German invention and at current bike research.
