Research at the Wenner-Gren Institute is currently being conducted by sixteen independent groups seeking answers to fundamental biological problems at the molecular level in the fields of Cell Biology, Developmental Biology, Immunology, and Physiology.

The research relies on tools of biochemistry, genetics, immunology, molecular biology, and imaging of cells and whole organisms. Genetic and genomic analysis is carried out using well-established model organisms, including yeast, flies and mice, and in human populations. Several groups participate in clinical studies via well-established collaborations.
