CIBSS-C – Towards Discovery-Driven Innovation

The new synthetic biological and chemical tools developed in CIBSS will enable dynamic modulation of signalling processes and control of biological function. These control-of-function technologies are applied in all areas of CIBSS research in order to analyse how molecular signalling events at distinct locations and point in time are translated across biological scales into changes in fate and function of cells and tissues. This research will contribute to an integrative understanding of biological signalling processes and will propel the discoveries and technologies resulting from the CIBSS Research Programme towards innovation in medicine and plant sciences.
