"Book a scientist" has started again

To all those curious and thirsty for knowledge, we want to make an exciting offer with the upcoming "Book a Scientist" on November 10, 2021: Book your exclusive, virtual conversation also with three of our LSB researchers. They will provide insight into their research topics and their everyday work, answer your individual questions and look forward to exchanging ideas with you.

You can find the approx. 130 topics offered by the Leibniz Association as well as dates here:

To reserve a talk, write an email to veranstaltungen(at)leibniz-gemeinschaft.de stating your name, the topic you have chosen and the time slot you would like to attend. You will receive a confirmation email if the appointment is still available. You are also welcome to send us already one or two questions that you are particularly interested in regarding the chosen topic. The offer is free of charge. The discussions take place virtually. Some talks are also offered in English.

June 15, 2019: Long Night of Sciences in Berlin

Our topic: Working World Food Research 4.0

Over the last century food research has changed considerably. This change was accompanied by a rapid development of novel research methods and technologies. Food research 4.0 means that researchers at Leibniz-LSB@TUM are combining latest methods of biomolecular basic research and bioinformatics with high-performance analytic technologies. In doing so, they pursue a systems biology approach superior to classical food chemistry. In the future, food research 4.0 will help to supply the population with sustainably produced food and to ensure a healthy, enjoyable diet. Last but not least, it will allow us to develop novel individual nutritional concepts for people suffering from food intolerances or other diet-related diseases.

Visit our booth from 10 to 13 November 2018 at the old congress hall in Munich and inform yourself about our research. Find out more about hereditary differences in odor perception, learn more about recent findings on wheat sensitivity or get an answer to the question: Do flavors play a role in human immune defence?

Open House Day 2018

Visit our Institute in Freising/Weihenstephan

This is your chance to experience science and research up close and personal – in the anniversary year 2018 at all TUM locations. At the open house day, from 11 am to 5 pm, we invite you to visit also our Institute providing fascinating insights into our research. Join us to test your chemical senses!

June 9, 2018: Long Night of Sciences in Berlin

From 5 to 12 pm, at the Long Night of Sciences in Berlin, scientists of the Leibniz-LSB@TUM presented their research together with partners from the Leibniz Research Alliance "Sustainable Food Production and Healthy Nutrition" at the Headquarter of the Leibniz Association.

At the booth of the Leibniz-LSB@TUM it was all about the questions: Is gluten generally harmful to health? Is spelt easier to digest than wheat? Are old wheat varieties better than new ones? Questions that the Leibniz-LSB@TUM scientists, together with colleagues from the Leibniz Institute of Plant Genetics and Crop Plant Research in Gatersleben are pursuing together in the "Wheatscan" project.
