Biomedicine

Biomedicine

This program focuses on biomedical basic and translational science. It opens for independent research projects in basic environments such as biomedical laboratories with a potential to translate into clinical environments. This should lead to new solutions in precision medicine involving collaboration with engineers and medical doctors. The scope is broadly defined within the biomedical field and related areas. Current PhD projects are focusing on e.g. metabolism, pain mechanisms, stem cells, neurobiology, and immune system.

The PhD projects typically involve animal studies, but patient studies are also often included. The research quality is ensured by highly qualified supervisors in the various disciplines and specific courses within biomedicine are offered.
