Our Lab is part of the University of Turin (UNITO), Department of Agricultural, Forest, and Food Sciences (DISAFA). UNITO is a higher education, research-focused public institution founded in 1404, counting ~70000 students.

Coordinated by Prof. Simone Tosi, the BeeLab involves numerous scientists, including Dr. Davide Cuttini (research technician), postdocs, PhDs, research collaborators, and students.

The BeeLab team

Our research investigates the health and behaviour of multiple bee pollinators, including honey bees, bumble bees, and solitary bees.

We aim at gaining a more comprehensive understanding of the complex dynamics of both individual and combined impact of multiple factors on bees, including (but not limited to) pesticides and nutrition (see: publications).

We use traditional and innovative techniques including behavioural, physiological, and modelling approaches for research, monitoring, and risk assessment purposes.


Students with the bee technician

We believe that a respectful, open-minded environment nurtures creativity, innovation, and scientific excellence.
The BeeLab is committed to maintaining a safe and inclusive environment for everyone, regardless of ethnicity, race, gender identity, sexual orientation, nationality, socio-economic status, religion, physical ability, or age.
