Welcome to one of the larger departments at the University of Gothenburg with about 300 employees of which 100 are graduate/PhD students. Our research and educational activities are of highest quality and cover a wide scientific field from the atomic and molecular levels all the way through cells to intact organisms. Much of the phenomena studied in the department illustrate the chemical and biological interplay between molecules in our natural environment and in living systems.
The department comprises close to 60 researchers and lecturers with extensive international networks, cross-disciplinary research activities and education in chemistry, medicinal chemistry, molecular biology, and genomics and systems biology. Our staff also participates in educational programs in biology, atmospheric, environmental and marine sciences, and in programs to become pharmacist, teacher or engineer. The department runs outreach activities including extensive contacts with school, industry, authorities and society.
