Research at MBB
The aim with the research at the Department of Medical Biochemistry and Biophysics (MBB) is to understand fundamental cellular processes and how dysfunction in these processes can cause both common diseases and rare inherited diseases.
Examples of the diseases that we work with are cancer, diabetes, heart disease, inflammation, and Parkinson’s and Alzheimer’s diseases. The expectation is that increased knowledge about the fundamental mechanisms that are impaired in these diseases can contribute to the development of new treatments.
There are currently twelve research divisions at MBB, each consisting of one or several research groups.
