Welcome to the homepage of the research group of Prof. Dr. Nils Helge Schebb.

Our research focuses on the investigation of biological activities employing instrumental analytical methods. By providing quantitative data about the activity and concentration of compounds on the molecular stage we seek to improve the systematic/molecular understanding of their protective as well as toxicological effects.
