The research building hosts two research departments, i.e. Plant Systems Biology (east wing) and Inflammation Research Center (west wing).

Covering a total surface area of 24,405 m², the structure comprises a spacious main building, two laboratory wings separated by a garden, and a half-open parking garage. In addition to the general reception area and offices, the front building contains a seminar room for 200 persons, a library, and a cafeteria. The two lab wings, each 36 meters long and three stories high, house the research departments with approximately 15 lab units each providing work space for 12 people. Greenhouses are located on top of the east wing. Central service units are used for shared research equipment. This new infrastructure greatly facilitates efficient scientific research.
