Pediatric Surgery (Pediatric Surgery Research Unit)

The Pediatric Surgery Research Unit comprises two research groups; Pediatric Surgery and Pediatric Urology.

The research activities range from basic studies on genetic and molecular mechanisms behind malformations and tissue engineering to clinical studies on long-term outcomes of children with malformations and epidemiological studies. The main goal is to provide high-quality care for children with malformations, including management of complications and impaired function up to adult age. The Unit is also involved in education at different levels.
