The Faculty of Biology at the University of Barcelona was established in 1974, making it a pioneering institution in Spain. It first appeared as a result of increasing knowledge in the field of life sciences at a time of relentless diversification. Soon other faculties of Biology appeared, vastly improving our capacity to develop better-qualified biology professionals. An obvious example of this was the division of the original Natural Sciences degree into two separate courses, Biology and Geology, more than twenty years earlier in 1952. Both were to become established amongst the science faculties and still exist in many universities.

The three basic functions of the Faculty are:

  • Teaching: transmitting knowledge.
  • Research: generating knowledge.
  • Interaction with society: encouraging research development
