Research Areas in Biomedicum
The aim of Biomedicum is to collect a large part of the experimental research carried out at Karolinska Institutet's Solna Campus under one roof, in an advanced research environment that promotes interdisciplinary cooperation and research.
Cancer and Haematology
Karolinska Institutet is at the forefront of cancer research in the world. The primary goal of the research conducted at Karolinska Institutet is to make sure that as few people as possible suffer or die from cancer. Our research covers all areas, from the examination of molecules to the study of large demographic groups.
Cell, Molecular and Structural Biology
These fundamental research areas are concerned with the basic building blocks of the body, the cells, investigating their structure and function, both normally and pathologically. Research involves the study of genes and their expression, as well as proteins and other organic substances, and how these co-operate in the living cell.
Developmental Biology, Stem Cells, Reproductive, Regenerative and Reparative Medicine
Developmental biology includes the study of how genes regulate cell growth, the differentiation of cells from the stem cell stage and onwards, and the processes that result in the formation of tissues and organs. The aim is to find new methods of treating disease and repairing damaged tissues. Reproduction involves research into germ cells, infertility, pregnancy, foetal medicine, the newborn infant and andrology. Reparative medical research involves surgery and orthopaedics.
Circulation and respiration
Research into circulation and respiration deals principally with the heart, blood vessels and lungs. It spans several important medical fields and diseases which impact significantly on both individuals and society.
Endocrinology and Metabolism
Research into endocrinology and metabolism touches upon many of the most important health problems of our time, including diabetes, obesity, hypertension, osteoporosis and hormonal disturbances. The research involves e.g. nutrition, physical activity, anaesthesia and intensive care, drug metabolism, psychiatry, neurology, nephrology and gastroenterology.

Infection, Inflammation, Immunology and Microbiology
The four subjects immunology, infection, inflammation and microbiology are closely connected. Infections are caused by microorganisms, the immune system protects us against infections and immune responses also cause inflammation, which is involved in combatting infection, but can, if stimulated in other ways, cause chronic inflammatory conditions.
Neuroscientists at Karolinska Institutet strive to make fundamental discoveries about nervous system function, to teach and train the next generation of scientists and clinicians, and to translate research findings into improvements in the diagnosis and treatment of psychiatric and neurological disorders.
