Knowledge for health and innovation

Medical research in Latvia contributes to global and European research missions by specialising in biomedicine and biopharmacy and by developing medical technology and biotechnology. While human health is the overarching goal of medical science, discoveries in this field inspire and drive a variety of disciplines, from chemistry and material sciences to sociology and ethics.

Medicine and health science have historically been and still are some of the strongest areas of the national research environment. Today, countless initiatives are strengthening this position for the future. In the globally connected medical world, the demand for research and researchers well exceeds supply.
