The comprehensive and individually tailored services offered by the Fraunhofer Group for Life Sciences for the application of novel technologies require an organization that covers a broad range of disciplines, methods, and equipment. Under the motto “research for human health and the environment”, the Fraunhofer Group for Life Sciences offers its clients a rich pool of complementary expertise.
Six Fraunhofer institutes and one Fraunhofer research institution, each having proven in-depth expertise in different areas within the life sciences, are involved in this Group: the Fraunhofer institutes for Biomedical Engineering IBMT, Interfacial Engineering and Biotechnology IGB, Molecular Biology and Applied Ecology IME, Toxicology and Experimental Medicine ITEM, Process Engineering and Packaging IVV, Cell Therapy and Immunology IZI, and the Fraunhofer Research Institution for Marine Biotechnology and Cell Technology EMB. Their combined knowledge of biology, chemistry, biochemistry, biotechnology, medicine, pharmacology, ecology, and nutritional science is thus pooled and synergized within this Fraunhofer Group. In all these Fraunhofer institutes, the scientists collaborate in interdisciplinary teams, so that tailored know-how concerning information technology, engineering science, and legal requirements is also available. Research and implementation at the client’s facilities therefore go hand in hand.
The Fraunhofer-Gesellschaft stands for reliable partnership in applied research. As the largest research organization of its kind in Europe, it develops market-oriented solutions tailored to the specific requirements of each client. A solid basis for this is its own preliminary research, geared to the basics and frequently undertaken in close cooperation with universities and other academic institutions.
One of the most important things we have learned: the path from the very first idea to the perfect solution is always very exciting – and we will gladly go down this path with you.
