The Department of Clinical Biochemistry at Aarhus University Hospital is internationally renowned and highly specialised in the measurement of circulating biomarkers. The department is dynamic, innovative and dedicated to excellence within the field of clinical biochemistry, including oncology, haematology and coagulation disorders

The department has approximately 300 staff members (medical doctors, biochemists, biomedical laboratory scientists, IT specialists) and is organised in a section/staff structure.

The sections perform analytical work within a defined field, headed by a management group of a specialist doctor, a biochemist, and a biomedical laboratory scientist.
