The prevailing activity of the Institute is elementary research, and to a small degree applied and developmental research in various biomedical fields. The research programme of the Institute aims at the study of the cell and molecular mechanisms and rules which are basic for the physiological and different pathological states of an organism in order to obtain data which will contribute to the enrichment of the general knowledge and better understanding of certain diseases, their diagnostics and therapy. The research is carried out in vitro and in vivo, using different experimental models and approaches, as well as on the material of human origin. Besides the national scientific programmes funded by the Ministry of Science, the Institute is at the moment implementing four projects within the Sixth framework programme for research and technological development of the European Union (FP6). Two of these projects are coordinated by the University, other two are bilateral projects (with Switzerland and France).
The Institute has eight organisational units, i.e. scientific research groups: hematology, parasitology, cardiovascular physiology, neurophysiology, immunology, pathology and citology, diet and metabolism, and biomedical engineering and telemedicine.
