DIfE celebrates topping-out ceremony for new research building

Almost half a year after the laying of the foundation stone, the German Institute of Human Nutrition Potsdam-Rehbruecke (DIfE) celebrated the topping-out ceremony for its new laboratory and office building on 4 December together with architects, construction companies and guests from politics and research. "Where once there was a big hole in the construction site, today the Gerty-Cori house is showing its full dimension. The trades have worked hand in hand and the shell is now finished earlier than planned. Many thanks to everyone involved", said Dr. Birgit Schröder-Smeibidl, Administrative Director at DIfE.


German Institute of Human Nutrition

The mission of the German Institute of Human Nutrition Potsdam-Rehbruecke (DIfE) is to conduct experimental and clinical research in the field of nutrition and health. Scientists at the DIfE pursue these scientific goals by interdisciplinary cooperation comprising a broad spectrum of experimental, medical and epidemiological methods.

Therefore the researchers focus on three areas:

The aim is to understand the molecular basis of nutrition-dependent diseases, and to develop new strategies for prevention, treatment, and nutritional recommendations.

DIfE is an independent foundation and member of the Leibniz Association, an alliance of scientific institutions.
