Other special core facilities

On this page we have collected special research infrastructures within the areas of stem cell technology and cell therapy, as well as other laboratory resources.

Clinical Research Center

Clinical Research Center (CRF) is a common resource for researchers from different departments at Karolinska Institutet and/or clinics at Karolinska University Hospital. At CRF researchers have, among other things, access to advanced techniques such as production and analysis of transgenic animals as well as high-throughput mutation analysis in addition to well-equipped animal departments. The aim is to create a high quality infrastructure equipped to provide services requested by the research groups at KI’s south campus.

e-Health Core Facility

The e-Health Core Facility aims to establish a sustainable and efficient organization to support healthcare research and development at KI, in the Stockholm region and nationally. The facility consists of four nodes at different departments at KI.

Patient-specific iPS cell lines opens up unique opportunities to in vitro study and create cellular models of human disease. The facility reprograms human fibroblast cells using Sendai viruses, which is a non-integrating method.

Stem Cell & Organoid Core Facility

The Stem Cell & Organoid Core Facility (CMM – OrganoidCellStem) facility is located at the Centre for Molecular Medicine and has the aim to facilitate the generation and distribution of human organoids from pluripotent stem cells, and to develop in vitro cellular models for academy and industry. The facility also provides support for the maintenance and differentiation of established human pluripotent stem cell lines – both human embryonic stem cells and human induced pluripotent stem cells – and training for researchers.

Karolinska Cell Therapy Center and Vecura

Karolinska Cell Therapy Center (KCC) and Vecura supports and facilitates for researchers, clinicians and industrial companies that aim to develop quality assured Advanced Therapy Medicinal Products (ATMPs) and cell therapy products for unmet clinical needs.

Karolinska Trial Alliance 

Karolinska Trial Alliance (KTA) is a pro­fes­sional Clin­i­cal Research Cen­ter at Karolin­ska Uni­ver­sity Hos­pi­tal in Stock­holm, sup­ported by Stock­holm County Coun­cil (SLL) and the Karolin­ska Insti­tute. KTA is highly spe­cial­ized and has a com­pre­hen­sive knowl­edge within the field and gives hands-​on sup­port for clin­i­cal research to opti­mize the process of con­duct­ing clin­i­cal trials.

The primary goal of the uMOVE core facility is to provide a state of the art platform for investigation of human movement and behavior for mainly researchers within care sciences via multi-disciplinary approaches.uMOVE fyslabb, photo: NVS.

uMOVE will provide new knowledge and develop evaluation methods of the dynamical aspects of movement in interplay with psychological aspects − taking into account the impact of cognitive and emotional factors on movement such as the impact of pain, depression or cognitive processes (and vice versa).
