The department’s research is driven by the obligation to study the clinical conditions of our patients. Our research, therefore, always aims for answers to clinical questions. This approach implies the need for expertise within and utilisation of a wide spectrum of disciplines, competences, and techniques. Likewise, this ambition forms the basis for the tight and firm integration between our clinical services and our research activities.

The research covers a number of fields with its own spearhead competences, staff teams and scientific leadership. However, in accordance with the general research plan, the fields are variable and support each other mutually to strengthen and obtain synergies.
