At the Division of Molecular Medicine and Virology our research focus is on the understanding how different factors and signaling pathway regulate cells and tissue development and to understand how different viruses infect and affect cellular functions and our immune system.
The research involves studies on the molecular biology level as well as studies of biological effects on cells, on tissue, and organisms. The aim and goal with the research is to gain new knowledge and use it to to find new ways to prevent, diagnose and cure disease.
The division is involved in medical and biomedical education programs, both at undergraduate and Master’s level, as well as in education of PhD-students and post-doctoral fellows. The aim is to provide the students a knowledge and interest to continue with research within our research fields.
