Within the Tycho Net at the University of Rostock, expertise in the field of medicine and biology is bundled with the competence in science and engineering of new materials into a coherent interdisciplinary scientific profile. In this interaction of materials science and life sciences, the focus is on latest trends in regenerative medicine, biosystems technology and systems biology.

Tycho Net was formed with the aim to bring together into a nucleus of innovation the three major research programs at the University of Rostock :

Within Tycho it is aimed to balance for the apparent heterogeneity inherent to interdisciplinary approaches, by targeting at a new quality in research and in education in particular.

Tycho Brahe

In 1566 the Danish astronomer, Tycho Brahe (1546-1601), enrolled as a student at the University of Rostock, lost a part of his nose in a duel. He used his personal relations and his knowledge of metallurgy and medicine to get a beautiful golden prosthesis. Lateron he became well known for his contributions to various fields of science especially astronomy.
