Bundle Competencies

For an efficient Centre with Significance

The LPI builds on the outstanding competencies of the Leibniz Association. And in Jena we rely on the expertise of the University Hospital and Friedrich Schiller University as well as the two institutes located here: the Leibniz Institute of Photonic Technology and the Leibniz Institute for Natural Product Research and Infection Biology.

It is based on numerous established research associations, special research fields of the German Research Foundation (DFG) and projects sponsored by the Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF), such as the InfectoGnosticsResearch Campus. With these projects the supporting institutions integrate more than 150 German partners from the academic and economic sphere and have extensive international collaborations. The LPI sees itself as an open platform for users in Germany and abroad, and would like to contribute to a focus and increase in efficiency of research efforts in the sphere of infections. The translation of new diagnostic and therapeutic procedures will be sustainably accelerated as a result. Innovative solutions reach patients faster.
