What are UiO’s fields of research in the life sciences?
Get an insight into the everyday work of life sciences researchers at UiO and UiO’s work related to the priority area UiO:Life Science.
UiO:Life Science is the largest priority area in the history of the University. UiO houses more than 1 000 persons working with life sciences. They acquire new insight into the nature of life, ageing and disease, and help to address societal challenges with regard to health and the environment. A planned building to house the life sciences, chemistry and pharmacy is a significant aspect of the priority area.
Life sciences represent a platform for new Norwegian business
and the transition to a greener economy with new services,
products and jobs.
