The School of Life Sciences at the University of Applied Sciences and Arts North western Switzerland is situated at the heart of one of the world’s leading Life Sciences regions, ‘tri-national’ Basel, which borders on Switzerland, France and Germany.
We constantly compare our teaching and research with international quality standards and encourage transdisciplinarity as well as co-operation with networks and diverse partners. Our aim is to apply the fascinating Life Sciences in an economic context and, along with our research partners, to establish a distinctive international university profile.
Our colleagues are industry and scientific research specialists. They investigate the latest technological trends in Life Sciences and deal with various scientific issues using the most modern equipment and within the Life Sciences industry. Our researchers and students generate solid contributions to research, which bridge the gap between advanced Life Sciences and their practical applications.
We are a learning organisation with the courage for a change, fostering innovation and knowledge geared toward current and future markets. As a result, we continually develop our courses. We have made it our mission to support young entrepreneurs creating spin-off companies and to work to form collaborations with them.
