Sars International Centre for Marine Molecular Biology

The Sars International Centre for Marine Molecular Biology aims to address universally important biological questions, harnessing state-of-the-art technologies to leverage the unique advantages of marine and aquatic organisms.

New directions include a special focus on the interface between organismal biology and environmental sciences. The centre is poised to build on its partnerships with UiB and EMBL, to serve as a hub to develop and effect local, national and international networks connected by shared interests in Marine Life Sciences.

The centre uses a variety of mechanisms to develop scientific and academic activities at various organizational levels, mainly through research, academic exchange, and skill-oriented training and career development.
