Department of Forest Mycology and Plant Pathology is part of Biocentrum Ultuna at SLU in Uppsala. You can find us out in the field digging holes with big shovels or pipetting like there is no tomorrow in the lab. We investigate how microorganisms like fungi and bacteria interact with the environment.
Through our research we answer questions about how agriculture and forestry can be conducted in a world where the climate is changing. At the Department we have 7 professors, ca 30 researchers and 20 PhD students. In addition, we also have lab technicians and administrative staff.
Below you can find our contact details and directions to our labs.

Where to find us
SLU is located south of Uppsala centre. Go south on Dag Hammarskölds väg, turn left on Veterinärvägen and then right on Ulls väg. The BioCentre (a large grey brick building) is located on the left-hand side. The entrance is on the side farthest away from the road. Go inside the building, straight forward as far as you can get, and take the stairs to the left one floor up. There you will find a buzzer at the door to the Department of Forest Mycology and Plant Pathology. There are also buses that stop at Ulls väg, see Upplands lokaltrafik for details.
