About us

The Fraunhofer Institute for Molecular Biology and Applied Ecology IME conducts research in the field of applied life sciences from a molecular level to entire ecosystems. Our interdisciplinary organization and laboratories with most recent equipment including GMP facilities and complex facilities for environmental simulations allow a wide spectrum of research and development services in the division Molecular Biology and Applied Ecology.

The institute has around 540 employees working at the locations Schmallenberg, Aachen, Münster, Gießen, Frankfurt/Main and Hamburg. We have close ties with the Institute of Molecular Biotechnology of the RWTH Aachen University, the Department of Biology and Biotechnology of Plants of the University Münster, the Department of Applied Entomology of the University Gießen and the Institute for Clinical Pharmacology of the Goethe University Frankfurt/Main in terms of personnel and areas of work.

The Fraunhofer Center for Systems Biotechnology (CSB) in Santiago de Chile secures a direct presence of the Fraunhofer IME on the South American market.

Within the Fraunhofer-Gesellschaft we have close co-operations with the other institutes of the Fraunhofer Group for Life Sciences, the Fraunhofer Alliances Food Chain Management and Big Data, with the Fraunhofer Sustainability Network as well as other Fraunhofer institutes.
