The Institute of Biomedicine is involved in both research and education. In both of these areas, we focus on fundamental knowledge of the living cell – what it consists of, how it works, how its function is directed by the genetic material, and how it interacts with various kinds of micro-organisms. Using this knowledge, we try to elucidate the causes of diseases, and find new ways to diagnose and treat them. At present, the institute has about 380 employees and approximately 400 million SEK in total assets.
The Institute is composed of the following five departments:
- The Department of Infectious Diseases
- The Department of Microbiology and Immunology
- The Department of Pathology and Genetics
- The Department of Clinical Chemistry and Transfusion Medicine
- The Department of Medical Biochemistry and Cell Biology
