Laboratory of Experimental Medicine and Pediatrics

The Laboratory of Experimental Medicine and Pediatrics (LEMP) incorporates 7 clinical divisions united around the topic of inflammation and has a strong track record in a broad range of diseases affecting several organs including the lungs, gastrointestinal tract, liver, pancreas, kidneys, endocrine glands, and fat tissue, both in adults and children. Furthermore, as inflammation is one of the hallmarks of cancer, special attention is also given to cancer research.
