Clinical and experimental pathology

Our research projects focus on disease related alterations in human tissues. The main objectives are to understand pathogenesis, develop diagnostics further, identify potential targets for new therapies and look for new, not previously known alterations.

We study both morphological and molecular alterations. e.g. in protein expression or on the DNA or RNA level. On-going projects include studies on tumours, inflammation and degeneration to be observed in various organs.
