iFZ Research Centre for Biosystems, Land Use and Nutrition
The Interdisciplinary Research Center (iFZ) of the Justus Liebig University, as a scientific infrastructure and interdisciplinary center, plays a significant role in research-based teaching in the fields of biology, agricultural, nutritional and environmental sciences. In addition to the laboratories of the iFZ professorships, jointly used interdisciplinary research facilities such as climatic chambers, greenhouses or aquariums offer excellent conditions for experimental scientific work. The iFZ initiated the iFZ Masters awards in order to honor and make known particularly outstanding, exemplary master theses every year. Two master theses were awarded in 2021.

Securing biological resources using basic research into complex biological systems is the vision of the interdisciplinary Research Center for Biosystems, Land Use and Nutrition (iFZ) at the Justus Liebig University. The meeting of scientists from different disciplines encourages pioneering research at the frontiers of agricultural science, ecology, nutritional sciences and biotechnology at all relevant scales of our environment.
