Divison of Clinical Physiology

Clinical Physiology provides diagnostic methods for the detection and evaluation of functional disorders of various organs and systems in the body such as the heart, peripheral vessels, lungs, kidneys, gastrointestinal and urinary tract.

Research. Research in Clinical Physiology promotes a continuous development of new diagnostic procedures that are subsequently applied in the evaluation of a number of pathologic processes, as for example atherosclerosis. Many of the ongoing research projects focus on the relationship between physical activity and health, with special emphasis on mechanism behind the loss of muscle mass due to inactivity, old age or chronic disease. The effects of high intensity exercise, gender, genotype and diet are in this context a subject of special interest and the ongoing research covers this area from the molecular to the whole body perspective including even some epidemiological aspects. The research projects are conducted in close co-operation with the Department of Clinical Physiology at Karolinska University Hospital, but also with other departments at Karolinska Institutet, as well as with the Royal Institute of Technology.

Health Care. Methodological improvements emanating from research activity bring benefits to the health care system by being employed for diagnosis and follow-up of patients in routine clinical practice.

Education. The provided education (first and second cycle) includes courses in anatomy, biomedical laboratory science, physiology and clinical physiology as well as in chemistry, genetics, gene expression, research methodology, statistics and physical activity, diet and health. The provided courses remain mainly within the frames of study programmes for biomedical scientists (in laboratory medicine and in clinical physiology), nurses, occupational therapists, physicians, physiotherapists but also in study programmes for engineers. In addition, there is also a four years’ educational Ph.D. programme (third cycle) available.
