Competence Center of Neurodevelopmental Disorders


Karolinska Institutet Center of Neurodevelopmental Disorders (KIND) is a competence center for research, development and education within the area of developmental psychopathology, including psychiatric and neurologic conditions. Autism spectrum disorders and ADHD represent some of the common conditions within KIND's scope. KIND is a center established in collaboration between Karolinska Institutet and Stockholm County Council.

Department of Cell and Molecular Biology

CMB is a department strongly focused on basic science conducting research in several areas of cell, molecular and developmental biology.

It was stated more than 80 years ago by Edmund B. Wilson in the book The Cell in Development and Heredity that "the key to every biological problem must finally be sought in the cell, for every living organism is, or at sometime has been, a cell".

The Department of Cell and Molecular Biology (CMB) at Karolinska Institutet has, since its foundation during the 1940's, been devoted to studies of DNA, RNA and proteins of importance for cellular functions. Today, CMB is comprised of more than 30 research groups organized in three themes: Cell Biology, Developmental and Stem Cell Biology, and Infection and Cancer. The research at CMB involves many different biological systems, including viruses, unicellular eukaryotes, animal models as well as direct human studies.

The goal of CMB is to carry out excellent biomedical science through which new approaches to fight human disease can be developed. CMB is a nationally leading academic research center of high international standard where science comes first and foremost. CMB researchers publish regularly in the best international science journals, a result of a long-term in-house culture that promotes real impact and key breakthroughs. CMB has a dynamic and cosmopolitan milieu of researchers originating from all over the world and that pursue active collaborations with researcher at fellow departments at Karolinska Institutet and at the Karolinska University Hospital, as well as with researchers at most leading research centers around the globe. Also, CMB strives to provide advanced scientific training to students with a focus on intense knowledge.

Department of Clinical Neuroscience

We conduct research and teaching regarding the function of the brain - from a molecular level to the effect on society. This activity is closely integrated with medical clinics within Stockholm. The Department is organised into eight sections, encompasses about 300 employees, 250 Ph.D students and has a budget of close to 225 MSEK.
