Faculty of Natural Sciences

Department of Biology



We challenge basic knowledge to create new understanding of the world.

The strategy of the Department of Biology is to understand biological processes of life to preserve the environment.

The department has academic and research activities in the following disciplines: molecular biology, cell biology, systems biology, plant physiology, zoophysiology, neurobiology, ethology, ecology, evolution, marine biology, aquaculture, biodiversity and environmental toxicology. Studies and research include theory, lab work and field trips. In addition to the science building (Realfagbygget), the department offers an exciting work environment at the Trondheim Biological Station and SeaLab.

The Department of Biology is one of eight departments at the Faculty of Natural Sciences
