The Department of Clinical Sciences in Malmö is one of six departments at the Faculty of Medicine, Lund University.
We strive to help improve the lives and health of the population through research and education. Our research is broad and incorporates many different fields within medicine.
Some research groups strive to solve problems using techniques from molecular medicine. Others conduct clinical research at the point of care or public health and epidemiology research.
We also contribute to two study programmes offered by Lund University in Malmö: the Master’s programme in Public Health and parts of the programme in Medicine.
The Department of Clinical Sciences in Malmö is part of the Clinical Research Centre (CRC), one of northern Europe’s most modern research centres, and is integrated with Skåne University Hospital in central Malmö. Research groups which have a lot of contact with patients often work at the hospital’s various clinics.
Some of the research is conducted as part of the Lund University Diabetes Centre (LUDC), one of the world’s foremost centres for diabetes research.
The department works in close collaboration with Region Skåne, which is responsible for health care in Skåne. Somatic, psychiatric and primary care are all important parts of the collaboration.
The Medeon research park and incubator for life science companies is adjacent to the department, as well as Malmö University’s Faculty of Health and Society.
From a European and international perspective, we participate in a number of initiatives with researchers in other countries, including within the context of membership of the EU.
