Fried­rich-Schil­ler-Uni­ver­si­tät Jena - Insti­tute for Phys­ical Chem­istry

riedrich Schiller Uni­versity is a tra­di­tional uni­versity with a strong research pro­file rooted in the heart of Ger­many. As a uni­versity cov­er­ing all dis­cip­lines, it offers a wide range of sub­jects. Its research is focused on the areas Light-Life-Liberty. It is closely net­worked with non-research insti­tu­tions, research com­pan­ies and renowned cul­tural insti­tu­tions. With around 18,000 stu­dents and more than 8,600 employ­ees, the uni­versity plays a major role in shap­ing Jena's char­ac­ter as a cos­mo­pol­itan and future-ori­ented city.
The "Leib­niz Cen­ter for Photon­ics in Infec­tion Research" (LPI) in Jena is an open user cen­ter where photonic solu­tions for dia­gnostics, mon­it­or­ing and exper­i­mental ther­apy in infec­tions are researched and developed into func­tional solu­tions with industry. The LPI was jointly applied for by the Leib­niz Insti­tute for Photonic Tech­no­lo­gies Jena e.V. (Leib­niz-IPHT), the Leib­niz Insti­tute for Nat­ural Product Research and Infec­tion Bio­logy - Hans Knöll Insti­tute (Leib­niz-HKI) as well as the Uni­versity Hos­pital Jena and the Friedrich Schiller Uni­versity Jena under the pat­ron­age of the Leib­niz Asso­ci­ation. The Data Stew­ard for Photonic data sci­ence is respons­ible for the qual­ity of the data and data sources at LPI.
