Division of Anatomy

The Division of Anatomy provides teaching in anatomy and conducts research in the areas of immunobiology, neuroscience and biological anthropology.

Teaching at the division

The division is responsible for teaching anatomy to students of medicine, nutrition and dentistry at the University of Oslo. Instruction includes lectures, courses and problem-based learning to macroscopic anatomy (including dissection, surface anatomy and function tests), microscopic anatomy (histology, certain subjects in cellular biology), and embryology. The division also participates in the Faculty's research education.

Research at the division

The division's research activities are divided into three main areas: neuroscience, immunobiology and biological anthropology. Research projects address issues related to basic mechanisms for normal function and the development of illness, with important links to patient issues.

Dynamic and highly productive, the division’s researchers work with original and innovative topics and have quality traditions dating back decades. Research has strong links to exciting international and national collaboration environments.
