Within the health field, new tools, methods and products and developed which contribute to improvements in preventive and curative healthcare or can be used to study medical issues. The field includes research on advanced biomaterials as well as the design and production of new polymers for medical application.

The field of energy and environment includes the development of improved solar cells, environmentally friendly and effective energy processes and energy conversion processes, as well as environmental issues and the production of chemicals and drugs.

The research within the materials field includes design, analysis and the understanding of molecular systems and the applications of these on, for instance, bioorganic materials.

The school has significant activities at the Science for Life Laboratory, SciLifeLab, in Solna and is strongly involved in the development of this national center for molecular life sciences.
