We are a multi-faceted, networked and constantly developing interdisciplinary research community whose organization and practices provide high quality research, research-based teaching and social impact.
Our aim is to train future academic professionals to the labour market. We offer training to around 800 undergraduates per academic year on human anatomy and physiology, biomedicine, molecular biology and genetics. The undergraduates include students in medicine, dentistry, pharmacy, biomedicine and nutrition.
We also provide training in the Bachelor and Master courses in Biomedicine as well as in Sport and Exercise Medicine degree programmes. Beside our teaching duties, we are active in biomedical research and doctoral training. We conduct research ranging from population-based studies to molecular medicine to uncover basic mechanisms behind chronic diseases such as Alzheimer’s disease, cancer, type 2 diabetes and cardiovascular diseases.
