About the Department of Women's and Children's Health (KBH)
The research at the Department of Women's and Children's Health deals with both basic and clinical science in women's and children's health. The research takes place in seven divisions with separate scientific profiles. The divisions vary in size and have several research groups.
We are also engaged in education on both undergraduate (MD programme), specialist (paediatric nurses, midwives, physicians), and postgraduate levels.
Some of the sites we conduct research at
Karolinska University Hospital's research facility, creates new opportunities for clinical research and education.
Science for Life Laboratory (SciLifeLab) is a joint effort between four Swedish universities Karolinska Institutet (KI), KTH Royal Institute of Technology, Stockholm University and Uppsala University but serves as a national resource for all of Sweden. The infrastructure at SciLifeLab includes advanced technologies for high-throughput molecular biosciences with focus on health and environmental research.
Center for Molecular Medicine
The focus of CMM research has since the beginning been common and currently chronic diseases.CMM:s proximity to the clinical care units and its equal proximity to basic science units at Karolinska Institutet have created an internationally unique opportunity to understand the origins, diseases mechanisms and outcomes of these diseases, and thus also new opportunities to develop prevention and targeted therapies.
