Welcome to KBC


CafeteriaSix departments and two research units at Umeå university (UmU) and the Swedish University of Agricultural Sciences (SLU) are forming one large multidisciplinary research centre: The Chemical Biological Centre (KBC- Kemiskt Biologiskt Centrum). Around 850 people are collaborating in a positive and creative environment in research and teaching. The KBC research school is organizing a graduate program for around 250 PhD students and each department offers a large varity of courses for bachelor and master students.

Metabolomics

Although the departments are administratively independent, they have the ambition to share resources (technical platforms) and build up tight networks between the departments to overcome the borders of faculties and universities. To support this development the university has appointed the KBC Group led by a scientific coordinator, professor Per Gardeström. The group is meeting once a month and coordinating the activities at KBC.  The aim is to develop KBC into a world leading research and teaching environment.
