Institute of Biodynamics and Biocomplexity

What are the fundamental principles that govern life? This question drives the research at the Institute of Biodynamics and Biocomplexity. Being part of the University's strategic theme Life Sciences, we perform interdisciplinary research that combines biology, physics, chemistry and mathematics to understand living systems.

We study life at different organizational levels, from individual molecules, such as DNA, lipids and proteins, to cells and model organisms. By combining wet-lab experiments with theory and simulation, we aim to achieve a systems-level understanding of complex dynamic processes and their evolution.
