The breadth and depth in Lund University’s research and education is unique in northern Europe. Medical research has become more and more costly. External funding is therefore playing an increasingly important role in pursuing cutting-edge projects, and staying at the forefront scientific development. Donations are an important supplement to government funding and in some cases vital to continued success within many of the university’s research fields.
The Faculty of Medicine at Lund University is working actively to ensure that the research we conduct and the knowledge we possess contribute to solving global health challenges. Here are three research fields within global health, focusing on children, youth and women. These are particularly urgent areas of intervention in which we need your help to move the research forward.
