Institute of Biology is the only scientific unit in Szczecin with full academic rights in the discipline of biological sciences. In the structure of the university, the Institute in its current form was established on 1.10.2019 and constitutes another link in the 35-year history of scientific activity in biology. When the University of Szczecin was founded, the structure of the university was co-founded by the Faculty of Biology and Marine Sciences, which later became the Faculty of Natural Sciences (1992) and then the Faculty of Biology (2012). Thanks to the efforts of the academic staff, the Faculty of Natural Sciences obtained the right to confer the degree of doctor of biology in 1998 and the right to confer the degree of doctor habilitated in biology in 2002.

  • Our Research


    A new modelling for pollen and allergen emission dynamics.
    The aim of the project is to monitor Ambrosia pollen and Amba1 allergen potential for causing allergies in order to decide whether these allergens should be included in the skin test panels.

    Project partners: Ankara Üniversitesi, Turkey

    CA18226 – New approaches in detection of pathogens and aeroallergens
    The goal of the project is to establish an interdisciplinary network of experts currently involved in the detection of bioaerosols using both existing methods as well as upcoming technologies such as real or near real-time technologies from atmospheric chemistry and physics or eDNA methods used in molecular biology. A main objective is to critically address the barriers that limits the penetration of new methods in detection of bioaerosols. The COST action will stimulate both research and technological development, e.g. by developing approaches for integration of multiple methods for detecting bioaerosols and how to handle data using numerical approaches in a big data environment by using fungal spores and pollen as examples.

The work also concerns the mineral and lipid profile as well as haematological changes in humans and animals as a result of the influence of nutritional and environmental factors. Research is also conducted on the influence of physical effort on disorders of systemic homeostasis and changes in aerobic and anaerobic performance of athletes, as well as on the influence of cryogenic temperatures on adaptation changes and selected human physiological and biochemical indicators.

    Physiology and Genetic Engineering of Plants. Research is focused on explaining the mechanism of hormonal and non-hormonal regulation of resting and germination of seeds. The research concerns, among others, determination of the role of carriquinolide and ethylene, gibberellins or abscytic acid in the control of seed dormancy and germination, analysis of the molecular basis of metabolism and perception of phythormones that control the disappearance of seed dormancy, detection of the role of reactive oxygen and nitrogen forms in seed dormancy control.

    General and Molecular Genetics: research is related to the molecular biology of tick-borne pathogens and mollusc population genetics. In recent years, research has been extended to other issues, such as pathogenic protozoa, the human and mollusc mitochondrial genome and the analysis of biological material of animal origin for forensic purposes.

    Hydrobiology: biology and ecology of fish, including the biological basis for the recovery of fish populations in the Baltic Sea drainage basin, the biology and ecology of zooplankton of rivers and lakes, benthic macro-vertebrates and rheophilous invertebrates. Histological studies concern the structure of aquatic animal tissues. Research also concerns the biology and biotechnology of fish semen (cryopreservation of sperm, development of cryopreservation procedures, gametes cryobanking). Research topics also include the biology, ecology and protection of small rivers and streams, and assessment of the impact of anthropogenic transformations on aquatic communities.

    Microbiology and Immunology: research concerns bacteria and viruses in the environment, including water, and immunity in rabbits infected with RHD and chlamydia.
