Physiology & cell biology
Research within physiology & cell biology can be divided into two main lines - plant cell and molecular biology and zoophysiology. Here we study how animals and plants function.
Within the main research area we combine basic research with applied aspects, aiming for example to develop more a sustainable production of food, fuel and biomaterials. Many projects have an ecophysiological approach, investigating how plants and animals react to climate change and other environmental stressors like salinity, pH and pollutants.
