Welcome to the Faculty of Life Sciences
The Faculty of Life Sciences aims to strengthen research and teaching in the Life Sciences at Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin and in the Berlin region, anchoring it as a pioneer in the regional, national and international research landscape. The Faculty is devoted to current and future-orientated scientific, technological and social topics across the entire spectrum of life forms: from molecular building blocks to microbial, vegetable, animal and human organisms, including how they interact with their experience realm and the environment. It primarily follows a scientific approach and supplements this with an economic perspective, with additional connection to the humanities, social sciences and medicine. Research and teaching activities there aspire to scientific excellence, interdisciplinarity and an international orientation. Special attention is paid to cooperative partnerships, the advancement of young researchers and the inclusion of members of disadvantaged groups.
