Molecular Systems Biology


The molecular and systems biology group is located in Realfagbygget on the Gløshaugen campus of NTNU. It consists of around 40 MSc / PhD students, postdoctoral scientists, researchers, engineers and professors. Approximately 30% of the group members are coming from different countries ranging from India and China, to Iran, Germany and Hungary.

Research activities within the group address various biological questions involving single cell as well as multicellular organisms and use a large range of different technologies.

Below is a brief overview introducing the individual units forming the group and summarizing their respective research interests.
