There is more exoplanet research at Leiden Observatory. Matthew Kenworthy works on direct imaging techniques of exoplanets, Christoph Keller and his group are experts on measuring planets in polarization, and Malcolm Fridlund (ESA-ESTEC) is also associated to the Leiden Observatory, who is the CoRoT-PI for ESA.

In addition, the Leiden Observatory is very active in the field of interstellar matter, planet formation, and astrochemistry
