tehostekuvaThe Haartman Institute combines pure research with clinical expertise. Haartman's research focuses on the mechanisms by which diseases are caused, or pathogenesis. The Institute also is involved in developing new methods of diagnosis and treatment to improve patient care.

Many of the Institute's research groups are part of large-scale Faculty of Medicine research programmes that operate through Biomedicum Helsinki, and some are part of Centres of Excellence of the Academy of Finland.
