Research at IGP
Research at the department aims to increase biological understanding of development and disease, and improve diagnostics and treatment. The overarching goal is translational medicine, i.e. to link basic research with clinical applications, in disease areas such as cancer, autoimmunity, degenerative and genetic diseases.
The Department’s research groups are divided into nine research programmes which you can find via the menu on the left-hand side.
