Bio2: Functional Biology

The scope of Expert panel Bio2 includes fundamental biological research, which focuses by content and/or methodology on cell communities, organs and (micro-)organisms. The finality of the research is the fundamental knowledge of biological processes without immediate application goals (such as medical, biomedical, agricultural, biotechnological).

More specific:

  • Research on physiological processes and their regulation, and the underlying mechanisms in all living organisms.
  • Research on homeostatic and hormonal mechanisms in plants and animals.
  • Research on exchange of signal molecules (Archaea, Bacteria, Eukarya).
  • Research on neuronal mechanisms, electrophysiological research.
  • Functional-morphological research, for example development, organogenesis, differentiation or ageing.
  • Adaptive physiological research (functional response related to environmental factors).
  • Research on the interactions between multicellular eukaryotes and micro-organisms.
  • Molecular-genetic research of behaviour.
  • Examples of disciplines (not exhaustive): plant, animal or microbial physiology, developmental or ageing biology, functional morphology, endocrinology, neurobiology and behaviour, ecophysiology, chronobiology, stress physiology, systems biology at organism and organ level.
