New career path created for research infrastructure specialists
Modern research often uses high-tech methods and tools that require particular expertise. Despite this, there has been no career paths in Sweden for individuals interested in the technical and methodological development. Starting April 1, 2023, such a career path will be available at Karolinska Institutet, possibly the first of its kind in Sweden.
New professorship at Karolinska Institutet centred on prevention
Thanks to donations from numerous actors, Karolinska Institutet is now able to create a new professorship in prevention medicine. The professorship is named after its patron, HRH Prince Daniel. The position will be advertised in 2023 and will be partly clinical in order to smooth the passage of new knowledge into practice.
