Strategic research areas (SFO)

The strategic research areas are efforts by the Swedish government in certain selected areas that has been ongoing for more than ten years. Karolinska Institutet has received funding for six of seven fields: stem cells, diabetes, neuroscience, cancer, epidemiology and health research.

KI also received funding for a joint application with the KTH, Stockholm University and Uppsala University in the molecular biosciences – what has now become the national research facility SciLifeLab.
