Research at the Institute of Biomedicine

Research at the Institute of Biomedicine is divided into three functional units: 1) Infection and Immunity, 2) Integrative Physiology and Pharmacology and 3) Cancer research. Research at our Institute includes both biomedical basic research and translational research, and the unit division expresses our research priorities.

We encourage creative interdisciplinary combination of research topics via collaboration of the individual research groups and the three units. In addition, we collaborate locally with clinical researchers, with other institutes of our university and with the Åbo Akademi University. We are also widely networked with numerous national and international universities and public and private research institutes.
