About the Department of Medical Biology

The Department of Medical Biology is more than 40 years old. Since its foundation in 1972, it has played an important role in establishing a medical school in Northern Norway. With more than 150 employees, the Department remains one of the cornerstones of the Faculty of Health Sciences.

Located at almost 70 degrees north, the Department provides a unique environment for both students and employees. In fact, a number of our employees commute to work on skis during the winter and cycle the same route in summer!
