Research groups at the Department of Clinical Medicine
Research groups are the backbone of medical research. They do research better, more focused and enjoyable.
At the Department of Clinical Medicine (K1) we have the basis for much medical research, namely good patient materials. Collaboration in clinical medicine should be flexible and opportunistic. Research groups are formed by making contacts locally, nationally and internationally and actively seeking opportunities and collaboration. Solid clusters ensure research expertise and impact over time. The best research groups combine stability and flexibility.
K1 is divided into 10 sections. Research teams collaborate independent of the boundaries of sections, department and institutions. Well-defined research groups promote research, strengthen application impact possibilities and recruitment ability. Such groups also encourage all participants to become even more productive.
Centre for Cancer Biomarkers (CCBIO)
Centre for Cancer Biomarkers (CCBIO) is a Centre of Excellence (CoE) at the Faculty of Medicine, UiB.
Mohn Nutrition Research Laboratory
The Kristian Gerhard Jebsen Centre for MS research
The assignment of the K.G. Jebsen Centre for MS-Research is to identify biomarkers with high sensitivity and specificity for multiple sclerosis.
The Renal Research Group
The Renal Research Group has conducted basic research in renal diseases and hypertension since the early seventies. The main objectives have been to explore mechanisms in development of chronic renal failure in rats and mice.
The Bergen Research Group for UltraSound in GastroEnterology (BRUSE)
BRUSE has through many years been testing and developing new methods for clinical use of ultrasonography. Among others are methods within contrast-enhancing ultrasound, motility, endosonography, Doppler, three-dimensional ultrasound, Strain Rate Imaging and sonoelastography.
Biomaterials research group
The artifical materials of medicine and dentistry. Biomaterials are materials intended to interface with biological systems to evaluate, treat, augment, or replace any tissue, organ, or function of the body.
Pancreas Research Group
The pancreas secretes digestive enzymes and is at the same time a hormone-producing organ that regulates glucose metabolism. Our research group focuses on the molecular mechanisms involved in development of pancreatic disease.
The Norwegian Arthroplasty Register Research group
Registry data from all over Norway on joint replacements, hip fractures and cruciate ligament injuries.
The Mitochondrial Medicine & Neurogenetics (MMN) group
The Mitochondrial Medicine & Neurogenetics (MMN) group is a clinical and research unit devoted to the diagnosis, study and treatment of inherited neurological diseases with special focus on mitochondrial disease.
Research Group in Molecular Pathology
Our group focuses on research projects that aim at improving current diagnostic approaches in molecular pathology. Our main projects involve studies of human papilloma virus (HPV) infection, lymphomas, sarcomas and non-small cell lung cancer.
Paraneoplastic Neurological Syndromes (PNS) research group
Paraneoplastic neurological syndromes (PNS) are autoimmune reactions that occur in connection with cancer.
Bergen Abdominal Imaging Research Group
Recent advances in medical imaging methods e.g. magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), computed tomography (CT), positron emission tomography (PET) and ultrasound (US) have enabled a refined characterization of morphologic changes observed in various abdominal diseases.
Research Group in Hand Surgery and Minor Surgery
A characteristics of the group's research is the close relationship to clinical work with injuries and wound treatment.
Research group on Quality, Safety and Outcome after Surgery and Critical illness (ROSC)
The research group (ROSC) was established in 1998 with the first PhD project on Outcome after Intensive care.
The Neck Endocrine Disease Research Group
The Neck Endocrine Disease Research Group is devoted to surgical diseases affecting the endocrine glands in the neck - the thyroid gland and the parathyroid glands.
Paediatric Imaging Research Group
Paediatric imaging warrants meticulous insight into growth and maturation as this may influence the appearances on MRI, CT, ultrasound and radiography.
Bergen Ophthalmogenetic Research Group
Hereditary eye disorders are a major cause of visual impairment in children and adolescents. Genetic factors are also important for the development of eye disorders in adult life. Identification of the genetic cause of eye disorders is important for precise diagnosis and is essential for rational...
Translational Science in Neurodegeneration and Aging
"Translation in Neurodegeneration and Aging" is a specialized unit of translational, clinical and laboratory-based research devoted to the study of neurodegenerative disorders.
Research Group for Palliative Care
Palliative care and palliative medicine focus on symptom relief and the best possible quality of life for patients with serious incurable disease or at the end of life. The Research Group for Palliative Care has projects within ethics and communication, pain and pain management, palliative surgery,...
