Uppsala Biomedical Centre – BMC
Uppsala Biomedical Centre is one of Europe’s largest centres for life sciences, providing research and education in biology, pharmacy, chemistry, medicine and dietetics. Research at BMC ranges from the smallest molecules to complete organisms. It includes molecular structural explanations for biological processes, the life cycle of microorganisms and their interaction with their hosts, and various aspects of drug design, delivery, metabolism and function. At BMC students receive basic education and training in disciplines such as pharmacy, medicine and biotechnology.

Evolutionary Biology Centre – EBC
The Evolutionary Biology Centre provides research and education in biology. This includes research on evolutionary processes at all levels, from molecular evolution and the evolution of genetic systems, organs and immune systems to the evolution of local adaptations and social behaviours in natural populations, processes behind the development of new species, and systems of organisms. EBC also includes the disciplines physiology, developmental biology and environmental toxicology, in which interactions between organisms and the environment are studied. The Museum of Evolution (Botany, Zoology and Palaeontology) offers both public and research-oriented activities.
Gamla Torget Campus
Gamla Torget Campus provides research and education in law, political science, and peace and conflict research. The Uppsala Centre for Russian and Eurasian Studies (UCRS), the Dag Hammarskjöld Library and the Law Library, including the European Documentation Centre (EDC), are also located at this campus. Uppsala University has used some of the campus buildings for research and education for more than 400 years.
The Geo Centre offers education and research in earth sciences – ranging from igneous rocks, volcanoes and earthquakes, weather and climate, the evolution of life on earth and dinosaurs, to glaciers and the storage of carbon dioxide. The Geo Centre is also home to Uppsala Centre for Sustainable Development.
Information Technology Centre
The Information Technology Centre (ITC) is located at the former garrison of the Uppland Regiment. 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).
The Rudbeck Laboratory is a research laboratory for immunology, cancer, genetic disorders, diabetes and Alzheimer’s disease.

The Rudbeck Laboratory also houses several of Uppsala University Hospital’s laboratories (clinical genetics, clinical immunology and clinical pathology).
Uppsala University Hospital
Uppsala University conducts extensive education and research in medicine at Uppsala University Hospital. This is where physicians, biomedical analysts, speech therapists, physiotherapists and nurses receive some of their education and training. Research is conducted in radiology, oncology and radiation science, and in the departments of medical sciences, surgical sciences, neuroscience, and women’s and children’s health.
The Ångström Laboratory provides education for natural scientists and engineers, and is home to 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 Scandinavia’s largest cleanroom.
Historic Buildings and Settings
Uppsala is a town rich in historic buildings and settings. Many of them relate to Uppsala University.
The venerable buildings of the University are still in use today for teaching and as workplaces. Living settings where old meets new.
