Experimental Research Departments
Among the 22 departments at Karolinska Institutet there are 10 focused on experimental research.
We conduct research on molecular endocrinology, cancer biology, functional genomics, systems biology, epigenetics, structural biochemistry, cellular virology, and nutrition.
We conduct research on developmental and stem cell biology, cell biology, infectious diseases, and cancer.
We conduct research on pharmacology, physiology, anesthesiology and intensive care.
We conduct research on cell and tissue biology, physiology, genomics, immune and gene therapy, immunology, infection, metabolism, pathology, and on transfusion and transplantation.
We conduct research on protein chemistry, redox biochemistry, metabolism, lipid research, inflammation research, structural biochemistry, molecular biochemistry, tissue biology, and developmental biology.
We conduct research on the work environment, biochemical and molecular toxicology, allergies and asthma, the lungs and airways, and immunology.
We conduct research on tumour biology, cell biology and immunology.
We conduct research on cancer genetics, type 2 diabetes, neuroendocrinology, integrative physiology, congenital endocrine and metabolic disorders, neurogenetics, signal transduction, as well as growth and metabolism.
We conduct research on the nerve cells development, genetics, networks, biology and pathology, cognitive neuroscience and nanoscience.
