Our mission is to perform molecular, cellular and integrative research at the highest international level and to train a new generation of successful scientists. We study biological processes that govern normal human bodily functions that are involved in disease pathogenesis. Several of our research environments have been recognized as outstanding both at the national and European levels.
We also strive to stimulate our undergraduate students with our enthusiasm for research and wish to increase their interest in both basic and applied sciences. We expose them to the most up-to-date teaching methods and prepare them for lifelong learning in their future careers.
Our department is located in the Biomedical Centre in Lund, next to the University Hospital, and offers a superb setting with a blend of clinical and non-clinical scientists.
