Our research

Can our gut flora affect the risk of getting diabetes? Why are more and more people on sick leave because of mental ill-health? Do pregnant women who take vitamin D have healthier babies? These are just a few of the questions our researchers are seeking to answer.

Research at the Institute of Medicine spans major areas, from molecules and cells to individuals and society. We conduct research in several major common diseases, including cardiovascular disorders, diabetes, obesity and rheumatism. Other important areas are allergies, pulmonary medicine, and community medicine and public health.

Are you a researcher wishing to move on to the next stage of your career? We offer outstanding research environments in which you can develop your skills. Work under way at the Institute includes preclinical research in a laboratory environment, clinical research and studies at population level.

We cooperate closely with health care providers, have a large international network of contacts and are also connected with Core Facilities that provide advanced technical infrastructure and skills for every researcher.
