The Tromsø University website said of its Medical Faculty: "Research at the Faculty of Medicine is many-faceted and has on many occasions been acclaimed both nationally and internationally. Outstanding examples are research into cardio-vascular epidemiology, cancer, environmental epidemiology in the Barents region and Arctic biology.

"Fundamental biological and biomedical studies are important fields of research, e.g. in different types of cancer, the human body's immunity system, pharmacology and the human body's reaction to medicines, microbiology and resistance to antibiotics, bio-technology/gene technology. In addition, the Faculty also concentrates on clinical research with an emphasis on improved diagnostics and the treatment of illnesses."
