Karolinska Comprehensive Cancer Centre

Cancer Research KI continously strives to increase the interface between health care and research with the aim of boosting translational cancer research.

Comprehensive Cancer Center 

In 2019, Karolinska Institute and the Karolinska University hospital have initiated an application to become a Comprehensive Cancer Center (CCC) as defined by the statues of OECI (Organisation of European Cancer Institutes): The definition of translational research is a research continuum from basic research through preclinical and clinical research to structured implementation to the health care and evaluation. In the Comprehensive Cancer Center care and prevention are integrated with research, development and education. The Comprehensive Cancer Center has by definition all structures needed for a continuous research process.

Fundamental to the Comprehensive Cancer Center is multidisciplinarity in the health care and integration of the research process. The main mission of OECI is to facilitate the development of Comprehensive Cancer Centers in Europe.

Karolinska Institutet and Karolinska University Hospital are the first institutions in Sweden to be accredited as a Comprehensive Cancer Centre by the OECI.
