Cooperation agreement between NCU and UNBC, Prince George, Canada
In June 2019, our University has signed a cooperation agreement with the University of Northern British Columbia in Prince George - Canada. The initiator of the official form of cooperation was our Faculty. The Department of Animal Physiology and Neurobiology (NCU) for several years has been cooperating with the First Nation Studies Department (UNBC) in the field of issues related to the protection of the natural environment, especially in the effects of the electromagnetic field on the environment and human. The persons in charge for this agreement are: Leonel Roldan-Flores and Agnes Pawlowska-Mainville for UNBC and Maria Stankiewicz for NCU. Programs for future cooperation were discussed during the visit of Bjorn Petersen, Manager of International Education at UNBC.

Studies in our Faculty
The faculty staff consists of internationally recognized researchers collaborating with leading scientific institutions around the world.Â Our ecologists and evolutionary biologists develop and apply up-to-date methods and cooperate with leading international labs.Â Our research in the fields of molecular and cellular biology, plant and animal physiology, and microbiology has received international recognition and is embedded in multinational scientific programs.Â We publish in high-impact journals (eg. Nature, Science, PNAS).Â In 2016 we obtained the national status of a Laboratory of Genetic Engineering, allowing us to work with genetically engineered Â organisms, as well as to teach respective classes.
Biology is much more than a double helix. It is the science about us, as living beings. To understand ourselves we need to know how we function and how we are embedded into the living world around us. We need to explore our evolutionary heritage and how to discover the biological resources that sustain our species.
