Bioactive Compounds and Biotechnology

Leibniz and FLI

Active agents are molecules that cause a defined physiological change in target organisms. Many active agents are derived from nature and are optimized for application using biotechnological or chemical processes. Our rapidly growing and aging modern society demands continuous responses to new challenges. Together with 16 other Leibniz institutions, the Leibniz Institute on Aging - Fritz Lipmann Institute (FLI) is collaborating on this issue within the Leibniz Research Alliance 'Bioactive Compounds and Biotechnology'.
