The Bee Research Institute

 

The institute combines basic research with practical beekeeping.
The main research topics are:

  • Neurobiology of learning and memory
  • Functional analyses of neurotransmitter receptors
  • Effects of honeybee diseases and plant protection agents (pesticides)
    on the nervous system
  • Novel therapies for honeybee diseases
     

Important is also the educational advertising of the public regarding the ecological and economic significance of honeybees by talks and guidances. The institute was founded by the Polytechnische Gesellschaft in 1937. Since 1963 it is affiliated to the Goethe-Universität Frankfurt.
