The department seeks to connect properties and emergent behaviors from micro to global scales, from molecules to ecosystems, including human populations. We aim to inspire our students and apply our expertise to shape a sustainable future and support healthy living.
Amsterdam Institute for Life and Environment
The Amsterdam Institute for Life and Environment (A-LIFE) was founded in 2021 as a result of the merger of three smaller groups: Molecular Cell Biology, Ecological Sciences and Environment and Health. The complementary and interconnected research and teaching portfolios of the three constitutive groups formed the basis of A-LIFE’s success.
