CITA is an innovative research environment exploring the maturing intersections between architecture and digital technologies with a special focus on material performance, simulation and advanced fabrication. Visit the centre here.
The Microbiology Research Group performs research in the fields of molecular and synthetic microbiology, focusing on a variety of microorganisms - bacteria, archaea and fungi - with a special interest in extremophiles. Interdisciplinary research approaches are used, including genetic, genomic and biochemical methodologies. Fundamental research, focused on a molecular-level understanding of gene regulatory processes, goes hand-in-hand with application-driven research in which microorganisms are engineered for the performant bio-based production of chemicals and materials. Visit the group here.
The Metabolic Engineering Group (MEMO) focuses on the development of standardised, automatable and generic tools and technologies for the creation of fundamental knowledge on key metabolic processes, together with envisioning a considerable reduction in the cost of biotechnology production processes and the acceleration of their development. Visit the group here.
Science and Technology Studies (STS) is an interdisciplinary field concerned with the social, political and legal conditions in which science and technology is produced, and the implications of technoscientific developments. Main research lines in the field are science governance and regulation, participatory design, and public engagement with science and technology. For more information about the STS research group at the University of Oslo, visit here.
