On June 11, 2019 Birgit Schröder-Smeibidl, Prof. Tilman Grune, Carsten Feller, Head of the Department of Science and Research of the Brandenburg Ministry of Science, Research and Culture, the President of the Leibniz Association, Prof. Dr. Matthias Kleiner, and numerous other guests from science and politics laid the foundation stone for the new laboratory and office building of the German Institute of Nutrition Potsdam-Rehbruecke (DIfE). The new building offers space for about 100 employees on approx. 2,600 square meters. It is financed with a total of 20 million euros by the Federal Ministry of Education and Research and the Brandenburg Ministry of Science, Research and Cultural Affairs (MWFK).
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.
