Research activities of the Faculty

Research activities at the Faculty are organized via the Organizational Unit for Research and Health Care Work, which is made up of teachers, associates and other research staff. In the recent past, high quality equipment for molecular research was purchased for its labs, and ultrastructural research is done on somewhat older equipment for electronic microscopy. The Faculty invested a lot in 2006/2007 in the equipment for dual purposes (education & research) or for research only, as well as in the construction, renovation and adaptation of the space for these activities. In its research activity the Faculty includes both PhD and M.Sc candidates and undergraduate students.
