Welcome to the research group in Molecular Precision Medicine. Our research is focused on genomics and epigenomics in human diseases.

Molecular Precision Medicine research

The research group in Molecular Precision Medicine (MPM), headed by Dr. Jessica Nordlund, was started in 2020. The MPM research group develops and applies novel molecular approaches to analyze the genomes, transcriptomes, epigenomes and proteomes of clinical samples. By integrating multiple types of -omics data with machine learning, we aim to identify molecular biomarkers that distinguish a given patient from other patients with similar clinical presentations, improve the precision of molecular diagnoses, and identify novel treatment approaches.

History of the group

The research group in Molecular Medicine headed by Professor Ann-Christine Syvänen was started in 1998. After being situated at the Research Department of Uppsala University Hospital for 15 years, we moved in 2014 to the new facilities of SciLifeLab at the Biomedical Centre, BMC. In 2020, Jessica Nordlund took over the leadership of the research group and it changed name to Molecular Precision Medicine.
