Department of Anatomy, Physiology and Biochemistry https://www.slu.se/en/departments/anatomy-physiology-biochemistry/ develops knowledge and teach on the common domestic animal’s anatomy and physiology. We work with livestock animals, sports- and accompanying animals as well as experimental animals, wildlife, insects and spiders. We teach the basic subject’s anatomy, histology, physiology and biochemistry on all educational programs at the faculty. We perform research and doctoral education within fields that stretch from molecular and cellular mechanisms to the form and function of the whole animal, as well as how animals are affected by physical labour, production, stress, diseases, management and environmental factors. We are situated in VHC, SLU Uppsala and are about 50 employees.

The research group in protein biochemistry consists of a professor and a doctoral student working at SLU, as well as a doctoral student, three postdocs, two technicians and a researcher working at Karolinska Institutet.
