Developmental Biology, Reproductive, Regenerative and Reparative Medicine

In developmental biology, researchers study how genes regulate the development from stem cell to specialised cell and onwards to tissues and organs. The aim is to find new treatments and methods to repair damaged tissue. Research in reproduction deals with infertility, pregnancy, foetal medicine, and the newborn infant. Reparative medicine includes surgery and orthopaedics, but in recent years also aspects of regenerative medicine.
