Cancer Research KI - Research
Cancer Research KI aims to expand the existing strength in cancer biology at the Karolinska Institutet, by supporting high impact research projects, promising young researchers and required infrastructure.
Cancer Research KI supported research
Cancer Research KI invests in human capital by research grants for young researchers and innovative research. All grants are sought in open competition and awarded through selection by external review.
Cancer Research KI Infrastructure efforts
Cancer Research KI supports infrastructure that facilitates high quality basic cancer research and the translation of findings into clinical practice.
Swedish Cancer Research Meeting
The three Strategic Research Programmes in Cancer in Sweden (StratCan, U-CAN and BioCare) regularly arrange a joint conference that brings together the cancer researchers nationally to present, interact and discuss.
Images of Research Competition by Cancer Research KI
They say that a ‘picture is worth a thousand words’, and with that Cancer Research KI would like to see all the great research that is being conducted within our community here at KI by our junior and senior researchers- and what better way to do that than with an image. The winning creation from this competition will be used as the banner on the organisation´s webpage; so, this is a pretty big deal!
