Division of Clinical chemistry

The division aims to understand and explain pathology at a biological level and to develop new strategies for diagnosis and follow-up of patients by biological testing.

The ambition of a clinical chemist should be that of serving as a molecular expert in the health-care system. Clinical chemistry is building bridges between basal and more clinically oriented research. The division is involved in a number of basal research projects as well as clinically oriented projects.
