Living Systems Institute

Interdisciplinary Research Themes

In the LSI, we address grand challenges in biology, health and disease through fundamental and applied research. We value an interdisciplinary mindset to answer the most important questions by applying a wide variety of approaches, regardless of specialism. The absence of boundaries that signify traditional scientific disciplines in the LSI fosters a truly interdisciplinary research culture.
