Welcome to IGP
The department conducts advanced research and education in areas such as clinical immunology, medical genetics and genomics, pathology, oncology, neuro-oncology, vascular biology, molecular tools and medical radiation sciences.
Some of our activities are integrated with clinics at Uppsala University Hospital.

New research findings from IGP
World’s largest ever DNA sequencing of Vikings
Genetic examinations of more than 400 Viking age skeletons reveal that the Vikings that raided Europe came from relatively isolated groups in Scandinavia and many of them had a genetic influx from Asia or Southern Europe. This is presented in a study in the journal Nature, in which Marie Allen and Magdalena Bus from IGP have participated.
Internet-based support can reduce depressions symptoms in cancer patients
The internet can be used to provide education and support for self-management interventions to alleviate depression symptoms in individuals with cancer. This is shown in a study from Birgitta Johansson’s group at IGP.
Leakage from blood and lymphatic vessels is differently regulated
Researchers from IGP show in a new study that cell signalling regulating vessel leakage differs between blood and lymphatic vessels. The findings suggest a possibility to modulate this signalling in order to selectively control lymphatic vessel function and to treat diseases characterised by lymphatic vessel leakage.
