Biography

Gro Amdam is a Norwegian biologist who is internationally known for her research on behavior and aging in honey bees. Amdam received her MSc (1999) and PhD (2003) degrees at the Norwegian University of Life Sciences before moving to the U.S. to do postdoctoral work at the University of California, Davis.

Amdam has published more than 100 research articles and received several research awards. She maintains a lab at the University of Life Sciences in Norway, and promotes student exchange between both countries.

Her lab uses the honey bee to study the origins of social behavior. Amdam's research team investigates honey bee social structure to understand how social behavior evolved from ancestral solitary forms of life. As her team has gained a better understanding of honey bee behavior, it has expanded its research to include aging and epigenetics.
