Department of Laboratory Medicine
We conduct leading research, both broad and specialised, within the field of laboratory medicine, focusing on the onset of disease and how we can improve diagnostics and treatment for patients. Some of our strongest areas with world-class research deal with cancer, genetics and blood. Another focus area is occupational and environmental medicine, where we study how our environment affects our health.

Stem cell research
Stem cells are the source of the body’s various cells and can generate new stem cells, which gives us completely new possibilities to cure difficult diseases. The best known is the transplant of blood-forming stem cells to cure blood cancer. We also research the development of stem cells for the treatment of several other conditions and injuries such as diabetes and neurological diseases.
