Currently there are 13 strategic focus area projects (2016-2019), 4 Coordinators' projects and 4 Emerging projects. The topics range from studying the regulation of normal development to determining the molecular determinants in various pathological conditions such as metabolic syndrome, cancer, or hypoxia-related diseases, and from the structure and functional properties of proteins to evolutionary genomics in plants. Most of the current Biocenter Oulu research groups are working in the Faculty of Biochemistry and Molecular Medicine, in the Faculty of Medicine and the University Hospital. One of the groups is located in the Faculty of Science, in the main campus in Linnanmaa.

Research groups of Biocenter Oulu have significant outside competitive funding and belong to e.g. the Finnish Centre of Excellence Programme funded by the Academy of Finland (Centre of Excellence Grant 2012 - 2017, 251314).
