Campus Areas at Uppsala University
Uppsala University strives to create optimal environments for cross-disciplinary cooperation. Creative meeting places have been built at a number of research and education centres.
Uppsala Biomedical Centre – BMC
One of Europe’s largest centres for life sciences. Research and education in biology, pharmacy, chemistry, medicine and dietetics. Research at Uppsala Biomedical Centre (BMC) encompasses the smallest molecule up to complete organisms. This includes for example, how molecular structures can explain biological processes, the life cycle of microorganisms and their interaction with their hosts, and several aspects of drug design, delivery, metabolism and function. At BMC students receive fundamental training in disciplines such as pharmacy, medicine, veterinary medicine and biotechnology.
Research and education in pedagogics, didactics, educational studies and psychology. At Blåsenhus, teachers, psychologists and human resources specialists are trained.
Other units at Blåsenhus are the Centre for Educational Management, the Division for Development of Teaching and Learning, the Blåsenhus Library, Centre for Professional Development and Internationalisation in Schools, the Regional Development Centre, Uppsala Learning Lab (ULL) and the Division for Contract Education.
Two universities have become one. Gotland University has merged with Uppsala University. From 1 July 2013 you can study at Uppsala University in Visby.
Campus Gotland is a small-scale campus with education in humanities, law, science and technology, social sciences, languages, theology and educational science.
Research and education in economics and social sciences with subjects such as economics, economic history, business studies, trade law, informatics and media, social and economic geography, and statistics.
English Park Campus
Research and education in theology, humanities and social sciences in subjects such as archaeology and ancient history, gender research, English, philosophy, history, history of science and ideas, art history, cultural anthropology and ethnology, linguistics and philology, literature, modern languages, musicology, scandinavian languages, sociology and theology. Here you will also find the Hugo Valentin Centre, the Choral Centre and the Karin Boye Library.
Evolutionary Biology Centre – EBC
Research and education in biology. Research touching on evolutionary processes at all levels, from molecular evolution and the evolution of genetic systems, organs, and immune systems to the evolution of local adaptation and social behaviours in natural populations, processes behind the development of new species, and the systems of organisms. The disciplines physiology, developmental biology and environmental toxicology, where the interactions between organisms and the environment are studied, are also part of EBC. The Museum of Evolution (Botany, Zoology and Paleontology) has both public and scientific lines of activitiy.
Gamla Torget Campus
Research and education in law, political science and peace and conflict research. Also located at this campus are the Uppsala Center for Russian and Eurasian Studies (UCRS), the Dag Hammarskjöld Library and the Library of Law with the European Documentation Center (EDC). Uppsala university has used some of the campus buildings for research and education for more than 400 years.
The Geo Centre is home to education and research in earth sciences – anything from igneous rocks, volcanos and earthquakes, to weather and climate, the evolution of life on earth and dinosaurs, glaciers and the storage of carbon dioxide. Also home to Uppsala Centre for Sustainable Development.
Information Technology Centre
The Information Technology Centre (ITC) is located at the former regiment area. Here research is conducted in algorithms, programming languages, databases, computer architecture, human-computer interaction, and more. ITC also houses centres for computerised image analysis, IT use in Sweden (NITA), programming of multi-core computers (UPMARC) and high-performance computing (UPPMAX).
Research lab for immunology, cancer, genetical disorders, diabetes and Alzheimers disease. Research on medical genetics, tumor biology, medical radiation science, clinical genetics, clinical pathology, clinical immunology and molecular geriatrics are all housed in the Rudbeck Laboratory together with several of Uppsala University Hospital’s laboratories (clinical genetics, clinical immunology and clinical pathology).
Uppsala University Hospital
Uppsala University has extensive education and research in medicine at Uppsala University Hospital. Here physicians, biomedicians, biomedical analysts, speech therapists, physiotherapists and nurses get part of their training.
The departments of medical sciences, surgical sciences, neuroscience, women’s and children’s health as well as radiology, oncology and radiation science all conduct research here.
At the Ångström Laboratory, natural scientists and engineers are educated. Research in physics, chemistry, mathematics, and technology and energy. The Ångström Laboratory is one of Europe’s most advanced laboratories for materials research. Here you will also find Scandinavias largest cleanroom.
