Research in chemistry, environmental and biological sciences

Our planet faces many challenges that we can only tackle in an interdisciplinary manner. Research at the Department of Chemistry, Bioscience and Environmental Technology encompasses human, animal, plant and environmental health by focusing on the interaction between the disciplines and effect on the total environment.

One Health and Sustainable Development research areas at the department

Chemistry is important to understand life and the environment at the molecular level. A more sustainable approach to develop chemicals tailored to improve health and lessen the impact on the environment is key.

The understanding of life at an organismal and cellular level and ecosystem interactions is the remit of biology and important to health in all areas. Chemical and biological understanding of natural systems is essential to understand human impact on our planet. Environmental engineering offers technological solutions to remedy environmental issues for a sustainable future.
