Biology of Stress Responses Biological stress responses are a priority research focus in modern biology and there is an urgent need to understand how cells and organisms respond to environmental, physiological, and pathological stresses.
Synthetic Biology Synthetic Biology can be defined as the design and construction of novel artificial biological pathways, of novel organisms and devices and the re-design of existing biological systems.
Molecular and Cellular Responses to Ionizing Radiation
(Radiation Biology, Graduate College 1657)
The DFG-funded Graduate College 1657 provides an excellent interdisciplinary environment for research in molecular radiation biology together with a comprehensive education curriculum in this field. Research is focusing on different aspects of the molecular and cellular response and molecular targets to ionizing irradiation.
