Kiel University’s priority research area Kiel Life Science (KLS) is founded on strategic investments in technological infrastructure excellence. KLS scientists work in research-driven networks without any borders in terms of disciplines or institutions. One Cluster of Excellence , major collaborative research centers, priority programs, and an international Max Planck research school currently form the core facilities of KLS. Within this extensive framework, comprising further external partner organizations, fruitful scientific cooperation and productive exchange is enabled.
