The network includes independent researchers and their groups whose research is related to cancer diagnosis, pathogenesis and treatment.
Unique to LiU Cancer is its engagement of scientists from a wide range of disciplines from clinical application to engineering. By supporting interdisciplinary research, we build on strongholds of Linköping University and Regional Health Care to form a high-profile cancer research environment with the ultimate aim to improve patient care and survival.
Our aim is to create a high-profile cancer research environment at Linköping University (LiU) and the County Council of Östergötland (RÖ) with an increasing number of high-quality publications and external grants-of-excellence.
We will achieve this aim by:
- creating a joint cancer research community at LiU and LiÖ
- strengthening interdisciplinary connections in cancer research
- catalyzing collaborative projects in cancer research and care
- building on existing strong research environments and strengthen collaborations between these
