Divison of Polar Life Sciences T032-760-5503 F032-760-5503

The Polar Life Science Division conducts studies to understand the unique biological phenomena and environmental adaptation mechanism of polar living organisms to realize their value as a useful biological resource for the next generation.

It also conducts basic research on biodiversity and evolution, polar environmental impact monitoring, and ecosystem operation principles, as well as develops ecosystem-modeling technologies to identify the influence of environmental changes caused by global climate change on the polar ecosystem to predict the proper responses to them. It carries out a study on developing new biological materials obtained from polar organisms to identify the value for the practical use of their bodies and metabolites.
