This competence area integrates common  research interests in biology, chemistry, toxicology, medicine  and engineering. It covers basic research in cell and structural biology, optimization of microbiological production processes and the use of inofmration technology in health care.    


The fundamental research projects as well as the newly developed applied technologies are connected to investigations on functional biological interfaces at the KIT. Interdisciplinary cooperations and priority research programs focus on:


  • Molecular interactions between cells and their environment
  • Biological use of nanoparticles/nanostructures in medicine, food production and biotechnology
  • Computer- and robot assisted surgery, diagnosis and therapy of cardiovascular diseases and telematic in medicine.
  • Evaluation of benefit/risk ratios of food components and contaminants.


The competence area is subdivided in the four competence fileds: Biotechnology, Cellular and Structural Biology, Health and Medical Engineering, Toxicology and Food Science.


The Competence Area "Applied Life Sciences" covers the following Competence Fields:
