Personalised Medicine

Precise diagnosis, more effective treatment and fewer side effects for the patients – that is the purpose of personalised medicine. The field aims to improve diagnosis and tailor treatment to the individual patient’s biological and clinical profile. All supported by the momentous development in genomic technologies and insights.

What We Do

We work in a range of overlapping areas, including genomics, other ‘omics, pharmacology, medical bioinformatics, molecular biology, imaging, and gene therapy. In a translational framework - from lab bench to bedside and vice versa - we study huge data sets in clinical and population based cohorts as well as cell and animal models.

Who We Are

We are more than 23 groups and 70 staff members with diverse expertise in personalised medicine.

Research Centres

Research Centre iPSYCH, Photo: Colourbox

The purpose of iPSYCH is to find the causes and create the basis for better treatment and prevention of five of the most serious mental illnesses; autism, ADHD, schizophrenia, bipolar disorder and depression.

The main aim of PASCAL-MID is to establish genetic therapies for monogenic diseases based on implementation of the CRISPR technology in hematopoietic stem cells. Focusing on immunodeficiencies, we aim at founding the technologies and infrastructure for future treatment.
