The Academy has 18 educational programmes, e.g. for dentists, physicians, pharmacists, and nurses. The faculty’s research strengths are in the cardiovascular field, paediatrics, biomedicine, odontology, vaccines, and pharmacology. In 2000, Professor Emeritus Arvid Carlsson was awarded the Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine for his research in neuropharmacology.
The Faculty of Science offers research and education in the natural sciences. The faculty has 19 educational programmes, e.g. in biology, chemistry, and physics. Marine ecology is a unique, high-profile field, and a quarter of the research in the faculty is associated with marine sciences. The faculty also has invested in strategic and discipline-wide research platforms, where ecotoxicology and integrative physiology are examples in the biological field.
Much of the biomedical research involving animal experiments is centred at the Laboratory for Experimental Biomedicine, but e.g. research on fish takes place at other sites.
