UiO:Life Science is one of three large interdisciplinary strategic areas at UiO. Our strategy states that we shall strengthen quality and interaction in research; recruit, educate and develop talents; and promote innovation in the life sciences related to environment and health. A life sciences building, which is planned for completion in 2023, is a significant aspect of our work.

For 56 mill years ago the climate on Earth changed rapidly and the temperature increased at least 5 degrees. Scientists are now closer to understand the climate change, called PETM, and why it lasted over 150 000 years. The answer might be eruptions of methane gas from craters offshore Norway.
