Leibniz-Institut für Naturstoff-Forschung und Infektionsbiologie
The Leibniz-Institute for Natural Product Research and Infection Biology (HKI) identifies and investigates natural products produced by microorganisms, mainly fungi, to understand their role as mediators of biological communication and to use them for the elucidation of cellular processes. Furthermore, scientists at the Institute are interested in understanding the pathobiology of human-pathogenic fungi and developing novel natural product-based antibiotics mainly directed against pathogenic fungi.
The HKI provides world-leading education and training of graduates at all levels and provides new technologies and solutions required for the advancement of Natural Product Research and Infection Biology of human-pathogenic fungi.
