The Department of Laboratory Medicine is one of six departments at Lund University’s Faculty of Medicine. We conduct leading research, both broad and specialised, within the field of laboratory medicine, focusing on the onset of disease and how we can improve diagnostics and treatment for patients.

The part you will now work with within the subject is to investigate the function of NLK in vivo using NLK knocked mice.
