About the Department

Welcome to the Department of Molecular Biology

The Department of Molecular Biology is affiliated to both the Faculty of Science and Technology and to the Faculty of Medicine at the actively expanding University of Umeå. The department has a pronounced international character with many guest researchers and graduate students from other countries.
The independent research groups work in modern laboratories with well equipped common facilities, which creates a framework for a creative and highly interactive environment. The specific research interests of the different groups are interconnected by a common interest in central questions concerning the molecular mechanisms of regulation of cellular processes in both prokaryotes and eukaryotes.

The Department is located on the interface between the University campus and the University Hospital (NUS) Areat in two buildings, 6K och 6L.
