The University of Gothenburg tackles society's challenges with diverse knowledge. 38 000 students and 6 000 employees make the university a large and inspiring place to work and study. Strong research and attractive study programmes attract scientists and students from around the world. With new knowledge and new perspectives, the University contributes to a better future.

The Institute of Biomedicine is involved in both research and education. In both of these areas, we focus on fundamental knowledge of the living cell - what it consists of, how it works, how its function is directed by the genetic material, and how it interacts with various kinds of micro-organisms. Using this knowledge, we try to elucidate the causes of diseases, and find new ways to diagnose and treat them.

The Institute is composed of the following five departments:

The Department of Infectious Diseases

The Department of Microbiology and Immunology

The Department of Pathology and Genetics

The Department of Clinical Chemistry and Transfusion Medicine

The Department of Medical Biochemistry and Cell Biology

At present, the institute has about 360 employees and approximately 400 million SEK in total assets.
