At the Department of Biomedicine we conduct research in human biology and diseases and educate students within these fields. The department also provides formalized consultancy assignments on matters of pharmacotherapy.
The department was formed in 2011 by the merger of six biomedical departments. Our aim is to gain a better understanding of diseases at the molecular and cellular level - by bridging the gap between natural science and clinical medicine and by using the results for improved diagnostics, counselling and patient treatment.
Do you want to work with us?
We have exciting job opportunities within a broad range of academic areas on a regular basis. Read more about working with us or see the list of vacant positions at Biomedicine.
When you conduct research into diseases at cellular and molecular level, you can also discover new knowledge that may suggest other types of treatment. A number of researchers have established companies which are in the process of developing new drugs on the basis of their basic scientific research for the benefit of patients.
