The *Felix Bernstein Institute for Mathematical Statistics in the Bioscience (FBMS)* within the **Faculty of Mathematics and Computer Science** at the **Georg-August-Universität Göttingen** is coordinating and enhancing the research at the cutting edge of mathematical statistics and biosciences.

Inspired by the fundamental work of **Felix Bernstein (1878 - 1956)**, who developed original mathematical and statistical methods for practical biological problems, we aim to continue this tradition. At the same hand he made significant contributions to the foundations of mathematics (**Cantor-Bernstein-Schroeder theorem**). He earned his international renown by discovering and statistically proving the blood group inheritance rules.

In 1918, Felix Bernstein founded the Institute for Mathematical Statistics at the Georg-August-Universität, encouraged by David Hilbert.
