Research

Biomedical research is at the heart of health care. Our researchers develop the knowledge, interventions and technologies that address some of the most pressing challenges in medicine today. From identifying mechanisms to fight infectious diseases such as COVID-19, to tackling antibiotic resistance, to monitoring biomarkers in cancer — we probe the underlying foundations of health and disease. Our researchers are affiliated to leading research centers and build their programs upon state-of-the-art core platforms. They work in multidisciplinary teams to develop targeted treatments that ultimately benefit millions of patients around the world.

Research Centres

DNA and high tech research

Beyond their departmental affiliations, our researchers belong to internationally recognized research centres to promote priority research areas as identified in the Faculty of Medicine and Health Sciences strategic plan.
