Department of Cellular and Molecular Medicine
The focus of the department is the functional cell, its genetic components and molecular cellular mechanisms in a medical context. With a firm foundation in the basic function of the normal and differentiating cell an understanding of the molecular, cellular and genetic mechanisms behind disease and aging is sought.
The aim of the department is to exploit new discoveries and mechanistic insight as guidelines for translational medicine in terms of novel principles for treatment and diagnosis of disease in an internationally competitive, inspiring, productive scientific environment exploiting state of the art (and beyond) methodology.
Our knowledge is disseminated through publication in international scientific journals, through research-based teaching and through direct dialogue and collaboration with the hospital world, industry and the surrounding community.
The Department of Cellular and Molecular Medicine, was founded in 2007 as part of a reorganization of the Faculty of Health and Medical Sciences
