Purpose and aims

Developmental biology and regenerative medicine are regarded as strategic research areas at KI. The amount of ongoing research and educational activities are continually expanding to attract the best students, researchers and teachers both nationally and internationally delivering highest standards of basic and clinical research. A vast multidisciplinary subject, DevReg aims to help students obtain a comprehensive view of the subjects and facilitates close contact with key experts in the field.

Developmental biology, cell signaling and regenerative medicine seek to investigate and develop cells, tissues, organs and biomaterials, alone or in combination, to repair, replace or enhance biological function that have been lost due to congenital abnormalities, injury, disease or aging. Methodologies to study translational control are extensive and knowledge of both molecular and computational components is of interest, as is model systems from different species. Such knowledge increases understanding of basic processes of importance for organisms and disease development. Tissue engineering approaches with cells have been shown to be efficacious in repairing tissues, and recently some approaches have reached clinical practice.
