Studies of the variation of the human genome and genetic factors that influence disease development in humans. This knowledge is used in the development of new therapies and diagnostic tools as well as advice in relation to genetic and acquired diseases. We study the genes important for disease development and treatment of numerous diseases such as mental illness, cancer, Alzheimer's disease, cardiovascular diseases and allergies. Furthermore, we research in methods for gene therapeutic treatment of eye diseases and disorders related to the skin and metabolism.

Epigenetics and cancer

Examination of how changes in the genome that do not affect the DNA sequence can be the cause of serious illness as for example cancer.
