Focus areas of research
Health Surveys and Biobanking
Population-based health surveys and biobanks represent powerful tools in the exploration of health and human disease. The faculty of Medicine is in charge of HUNT – the Nord-Trøndelag Health Study– one of the largest population-based health studies ever performed (a total of 100,000 individuals included).
Medical Imaging for Improved Patient Care
Research within medical imaging should strive towards achieving different objectives: improved patient outcome, cost-efficient health care, and commercialisation of useful innovations. NTNU and St. Olavs Hospital represents a unique multidisciplinary research environment in MRI and ultrasound.
Translating research for human health
The new fully integrated university hospital is being completed in 2010. Outpatient clinics, imaging and surgery, university research laboratories and offices as well as clinical wards located in the same building, provides an excellent basis for translational research.
The Faculty of Medicine, together with St. Olavs Hospital, have decided to increase our investment in global health through research, teaching and clinical activity.
