Clinical medicine and basic medicine are well developed in Estonia. Areas explored in the most fundamental parts of medical research include molecular biology, genetics, immunology, neuroscience, etc.
The Estonian Biobank holds protected data on five percent of the country’s adult population and is a massive boon to medical research. Estonia stands out for its ongoing ambition of developing and implementing the personal health care system. Furthermore, in the framework of genetics research significant steps have been taken in finding new solutions for screening genetic disorders and studying the genetical structure across Europe.
