Research at the Division of Physiotherapy

Denna sida på svenska

The research at our division is internationally leading and highly relevant to increase knowledge and improve functioning and health in the population. The research includes epidemiological, experimental and translational studies as well as the study of intervention and implementation outcome.  New research findings are continuously integrated in the physiotherapy education. Six research groups include the majority of the researchers at our division, but several belong to research groups at other divisions, departments and universities.
