Division of Surgery, Orthopedics and Oncology (KOO)

We carry out research in the fields of experimental orthopedics, surgery and oncology.

Among the many research areas are aims at a deeper understanding of the healing of injured bone and tendon, development of regenerative medicine, such as culturing human skin and other tissues, and aims at understanding more about carcinogenesis and translational oncology.

Cancer of many different origins is studied, such as breast cancer, colorectal cancer, gynecological cancer, endocrine tumors and hematological neoplasms.

Other research areas comprise inflammatory bowel diseases and Disaster Medicine and Traumatology.
