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.
