Life & Medical Sciences Institute, Universität Bonn
The Life & Medical Sciences Institute (LIMES) is a center of excellence for both basic research and higher education in Life Sciences and Biomedicine at the University of Bonn. It provides a framework for cutting-edge multidisciplinary research and offers young scientists early independence and responsibility.
A common scientific focus of the LIMES Institute is to study cell signalling processes underlying the regulation and cross-regulation of metabolism, cellular growth and local immunity in health and disease.
The LIMES research groups provide major research expertise in Chemical Biology, Medicinal Chemistry, Development, Genetics, Cell and Immune Biology, Membrane Biology and Lipid Biochemistry. They co-operate in a number of interdisciplinary research initiatives funded by the German Research Foundation DFG (Collaboartive Reserach Centers SFBs 645, 704).
