Biology

Biology is the natural science that studies life and living organisms and their interaction with the environment. One can assume that biology is as old as the human being itself, who tried to explain physical and biochemical mechanisms of living organisms and organisms. More than ever industrial exploitation of biology is in the focus of science today. In view of biologisation of our economy and society its importance is supposed to grow over the next decades.

Head of Department


"When I started to work at FILK, biology as field of research at the institute was still in its infancy. I am proud of what we have developed as team and of how versatile the possibilities are today. My major aim is to advance the department systematically. The material and technology competence at the institute is really high and above all in terms of interdisciplinary activities and cooperation with my colleagues from the other research departments there are numerous fields of research which have not yet been dealt with. In the era of biologisation of economy, society and environment and of increasing exploitation of biological resources I see a high potential in this regard."

Established Cellular, Micro- and Macrobiological Methods

Biology is one of the "younger" natural scientific fields of research at the institute. Above all in connection with researching the raw material collagen and its application in leather manufacture, microbiological questions turned up more and more frequently which we wanted to answer. Primarily the focus above all was the determination of moulds on leather and antimicrobial finishes of material surfaces of any kind and their proof of efficacy.

This area was systematically established and expanded. What started as a cross-departmental function is organised as research department today which meanwhile represents a broad field of research. Typical cell-biological as well as micro- and molecular-biological methods and techniques are established. In connection with collagen and other microbiological raw materials this way almost unlimited possibilities arise for research and development of biological systems for pharmaceutical, diagnostic, medical equipment and medical applications.
