On August 1, 2017, the Department of Cancer Research and Molecular Medicine (IKMM) and the Department of Laboratory Medicine, Children's and Women's Health (LBK) merged into the Department of Clinical and Molecular Medicine. We are currently updating the websites.

The Department of Laboratory Medicine, Children’s and Women’s Health


The research at LBK includes clinical, basic and translational research. The organisation of the department with the two large clinical subject areas of paediatrics and obstetrics/gynaecology, as well as several laboratory subjects, gives us unique opportunities for translational research.

Many of the research groups cooperate with other groups at NTNU and St. Olavs Hospital at the integrated university hospital, as well as with other research groups both nationally and internationally.

The department's laboratories for electron microscopy (EM) and histology are part of the core facility Cellular & Molecular Imaging Core Facility (CMIC).

LBK is organised into four units:
