Research

The research within the faculty covers large parts of the field of Medicine, from the tiny details of microbes to disease patterns and risk factors in the entire population.

Umeå University has designated strong research environments and three of them - Ageing Research, Global Health, and Infection Biology, are mainly based in the Faculty of Medicine.

Several of the others involve researchers from the faculty: Gender Studies, Modelling Living Systems, The dynamics, structure and function of proteins, and Welfare Studies.

The work is mainly done in the departments by groups of researchers, most of them also teachers involved in our courses and programmes. A few centres are almost entirely focused on research: Umeå Centre for Molecular Medicine (UCMM), and - connected to the Department of Molecular Biology - Umeå Centre for Microbial Research (UCMR) and Laboratory for Molecular Infection Medicine Sweden (MIMS).

New research centre: Umeå Centre of Gender Studies, Medicine (UCGM).
