In future, some 300 scientists and doctoral researchers from 18 nations will be working in the internationally excellently co-ordinated and co-operating research network “Brain, Behavior and Metabolism.” In 33 workgroups, physicians, biologists, psychologists, nutritionists, pharmacologists, and physicists will be researching the relationships between sleep, metabolism, eating behaviour, and obesity.
Milestone on the Way to Modern Life Science Campus
Following a recommendation of the science council dating back to 2010, the 38 million euro investment for the new building was jointly financed by federal and state funds. For the University of Lübeck, the inauguration of the research facility marks another important milestone on its way to a modern life science campus of the 21st century.
