About our research & teaching

At the Institute of Biology II (Zoology), our research is centered on biological and biomedical problems in diverse fields, including neuroscience, reproductive physiology, infectious disease biology, developmental biology, and epigenetics. The different principle investigators and their groups employ both experimental and theoretical / computational approaches. The analytical scale ranges from the molecular and cellular to the systems and behavioral levels.

Teaching efforts include both basic bachelor and advanced master level lectures, practical courses, and seminars within the biology and biotechnology curricula. Additional teaching is offered to medical students as well as to students of mathematics, computer science, and psychology.
