School of Bioscience
The School of Bioscience engages in research and education to a high international standard. We have well-developed collaborations within the educational, research, and business community – and the wider society – on a national as well as an international level. The school aims to be a centre of excellence within the life sciences in Sweden.
The School has two divisions.
The division covers the subjects of bioinformatics, bioscience, chemistry, ecology and systems biology. It engages in teaching at the foundation year, undergraduate, and master's level. It conducts research in bioinformatics, ecology and infection biology in connection to the general research in systems biology that drives the division. The head of division is Diana Tilevik.
The division covers the subjects of cognitive neuroscience and philosophy. It engages in teaching at the undergraduate and master's level. It conducts research in cognitive neuroscience and philosophy in connection to the general research in systems biology that drives the division. The head of division is Sakari Kallio.
At the School of Bioscience, the Systems Biology Research Center is established. The research in Systems Biology received very good ratings in the 2013 research evaluation (ARC13). Research is being conducted within the areas of
Approximately 1400 students are connected to the School of Bioscience's programmes and courses. Altogether, we have 13 educational programs at both undergraduate and advanced levels.
The School of Bioscience collaborates with several parts of society, for example with universities in Sweden and abroad, companies in the Life sciences, and public organizations such as authorities, hospitals and international scientific councils. We collaborate with other universities in order to strengthen our research with access to specific expertise, laboratories and equipment and for PhD studies. Our other contacts push the research to respond to different kinds of needs in society and help us spread our research results and affect the social development.
