Thesis projects

Student projects at the Department of Molecular Biology and Genetics for degree programmes in Molecular Biology, Molecular MedicineBiotechnology.and Bioinformatics. You are welcome to contact individual main supervisors to discuss carrying out a project with them.

It is also possible to carry out your research project at the Department of Biomedicine and the Department of Clinical Medicine.

Project day for presentation of research projects for students

Every year, a project day is held in April/May where all the supervisors present a poster with the research project(s) they can offer students. Time and date will be announced on this page when decided.
