Molecular Medicine

Molecular medicine in our opinion is not limited to the application of Molecular Biology and Molecular Genetics to the understanding of human health and disease. It aims to understand how health is maintained and the origins and mechanisms of human diseases. Its objective is to develop a novel understanding of good health, and through a better understanding of disease processes, find novel ways of preventing, diagnosing and treating diseases. Therefore, it includes both insights into medically relevant issues from the biological point of view, and potential medical angle of the given biological process. Ultimately these two types of research with very broad spectra of research problems and model systems are currently forming a new scientific discipline in it’s own right.
