Department of Biomedical and Clinical Sciences (BKV)

The Department of Biomedical and Clinical Sciences (BKV) is one of the largest departments at Linköping University with affiliation mainly to the Faculty of Medicine and Health Sciences.

Our goal is to conduct education and research in medicine and biomedicine, with a high international quality. At BKV you will find leading research in a large spectrum of modern biomedicine; from detailed molecular and cellular studies to genetics, clinical research and epidemiology.

Research activities are expanding and are still in a very positive development. Some of our strongest areas of very high-class research are neurobiology, genetics, cancer and blood cell research, drug research as well as regenerative medicine and system medicine.

In basic education, BKV is responsible for the majority of the medical programme, the biomedical laboratory science programme, speech and language pathology programme and most of the education in medical biology.
