Kiel Life Science

KLS_LOGOThe newly founded interdisciplinary centre for applied life sciences – Kiel Life Science (KLS) – links up research from the fields of agricultural and nutritional sciences, the natural sciences and medicine at Kiel University. With Thomas Bosch as coordinator and Stefan Schreiber as co-coordinator, KLS forms one of four research foci at Kiel University. KLS wants to achieve a better understanding of the cellular and molecular processes with which organisms respond to environmental influences. This covers a  broad spectrum from how agricultural crop plants adapt to specific growth conditions, or how, in the interaction of genes, individual lifestyle and environmental factors, illnesses can arise. Within this framework, health is always viewed holistically in the evolutionary context.
