Faculty of Biology


Over the next few years, a clear focus will be on developing the cooperation further between the research fields represented at the Faculty, as well as on strengthening the partnerships between the scientific, medical and technical disciplines of the University of Duisburg-Essen and its neighbouring universities and external research institutions.

Research collaborations are increasingly being supported by core facilities: on the one hand, in the biomedical fields of imaging, proteomics and bioinformatics, and in water and environmental research on the other. The core facilities currently being planned include algae collection and aquatic genomics. Stemming from common methodological interests, new ideas for joint research projects are visibly coming to the fore across the centres, faculty boundaries and beyond.
