Agriculture and biosciences research at UNH encompasses the study of living things from the large scale of farms, forests, lakes and fields to the microscopic scale of the processes in cells that make life possible. Much of the study focuses on the ecosystems that define New Hampshire – forests, watersheds, estuaries and the coastal ocean. Investigations in areas of genetics, physiology and microbiology are leading to a better understanding of how body cells and microorganism respond to their environments.
UNH research has had a notably positive impact on the community across a broad range of research areas, due to the efforts of faculty, students, and staff working in the colleges and focused research centers and institutes.
