Evolving Health in a Sustainable Environment

About Kiel Life Science (KLS): The Interdisciplinary Centre for Applied Life Sciences KLS  at Kiel University links up research from the fields of agricultural and nutritional sciences, the natural sciences and medicine at Kiel University. It forms one of four priority research areas at Kiel University, and is aimed at achieving a better understanding of the cellular and molecular processes with which organisms respond to environmental influences.

This covers a very broad spectrum: how agricultural crop plants adapt to specific growth conditions, or how, in the interaction of genes, individual lifestyle and environmental factors, disease can arise. Within this framework, health is always viewed holistically in the evolutionary context.
