The section Biomedicine offers multiple research opportunities in the broad field of basic medical research. The section is governed by principal investigators from two faculties: the Biology and Preclinical Medicine Faculty, and the Medical Faculty. Within a diverse array of research topics, all research groups of the Biomedicine section have one ultimate goal in common: contributing to our understanding of human diseases.
Research groups of the biomedical section address highly relevant clinical topics, such as the genetics of human disease, cancer and immunology, HIV, cardiovascular and renal diseases, and eye diseases.
Below you will find listed the divisions in which RIGeL biomedical students perform their research.
