The National Institute of Biology was founded in 1961 by the University of Ljubljana to undertake basic and applied research in biological sciences. Today, the Institute is a public non-profit organization for basic and applied research and is financed by the government. Individual projects are financed largely by peer-reviewed grant funding from the Ministry of Science and Technology (70-80%), while the remaining research and development activities are financed by various agencies, the Ministry of Environment, the Ministry of Agriculture, large and small companies, and other institutions. At present, around forty-five of the total of seventy-seven employees of the Institute are directly engaged in research. Many researchers are professors and instructors at the University of Ljubljana and at the Faculty for Environmental Studies in Nova Gorica, and elsewhere. The director of the National Institute of Biology is Dr. Tamara Lah.
