Studying Integrative Plant Sciences will involve you in fascinating research projects looking for solutions to many current problems.
You can find the detailed information about the Integrative Plant Sciences research groups and group leaders (Principal Investigators) as well as the research topics here:
Viikki Plant Science Centre (ViPS) is a virtual, internationally recognised community of plant researchers based on the Viikki campus. It includes plant researchers working in different units and faculties within the campus. Its purpose is to advance and expedite cooperation in high-standard teaching and research. As a student you will be part of the ViPS community through the courses, seminars, apprenticeships and degree work offered by the Master’s Programme in Integrative Plant Sciences.
Helsinki Institute of Life Science (HiLIFE) is a new life science institute enhancing high quality research, and integrating life science strengths across the campuses. One of the six strenght areas in HiLIFE is Growth from Plants. The researchers of the Master's Programme in Integrative Plant Sciences are actively participating in HiLIFE actions to enhance top research.
Many of the research projects of the Master's Programme in Integrative Plant Sciences are funded by the Academy of Finland and belong to the Centres of Excellence (CoE) in research.
There are several infrastructures and core facilities associated with the research in Integrative Plant Sciences:
