Department of Experimental Medical Science, EMV
Our department strives 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.
EMV is located in the Biomedical Centre in Lund (BMC), next to the University Hospital (SUS) and at Medicon Village, and offers a superb setting, with a blend of clinical and non-clinical scientists.
We work continuously to create a good working environment with an efficient administration. All activities are characterized by democratic values, openness and critical thinking. Before important decisions are made issues are ventilated in the department's consultation groups for departmental representatives, doctoral students, TA staff and younger researchers. We regularly make efforts to reach out with information about our research to the surrounding community.
Current Research Areas and Sections
- Cell and Tissue Biology
- Diabetes, Metabolism and Endocrinology
- Pharmacology and Structural Biology
In order to implement the department board's (institutionsstyrelsen) decisions and lead and distribute the ongoing work, there is a management group (ledningsgruppen) that consists of the Head of Department (prefekten), three Deputy Heads of Department (biträdande prefekter) and the Administrations Manager. The Head of Department is responsible for finances, personnel and the work environment.
The Section Manager meetings (sektionschefsmöten) with representatives of EMV's six sections, as well as the office staff, act as advisors. The group meets approximately two weeks before the department board meeting to discuss issues that will be brought up at the board meeting.
