Anders Hamsten: "I am resigning my position"

Professor Anders Hamsten steps down from his assignment as Vice-Chancellor of Karolinska Institutet. Read his letter to all students and co-workers.

Dear students and co-workers,

It has been a pleasure and a privilege to lead Karolinska Institutet, and it is with a heavy heart that I now step down as Vice-Chancellor. At the same time, I am totally convinced that our university will emerge even stronger from the current crisis.

Karolinska Institutet is composed of its eminently capable and devoted staff and students.  The enthusiasm, creativity and dedicated work of each individual in research and education will continue to significantly contribute to human health. This work will now, as in the past, achieve scientific breakthroughs and innovations that will not only benefit Swedish society but the entire world.

With all my heart I wish you confidence, satisfaction and success in your important work for Karolinska Institutet.

Anders Hamsten
