The Institute for Cancer Research has since its foundation in 1954 played a central role within the field of cancer research both in Norway and internationally. The Institute has seven research departments and more than 320 employees, master students included. About 70% of the employees and projects are externally funded. The Institute has internationally strong research groups within biochemistry, cell and tumor biology, genetics, radiation biology, immunology and cancer prevention. For more than 30 years there has been a close interaction between researchers at the Institute and cancer surgeons, oncologists and pathologists. This emphasis on translational science has resulted in numerous clinical protocols based on in-house research, and the Institute is a key partner in the Comprehensive Cancer Center, organizationally under the Division of Surgery and Cancer Treatment at Oslo University Hospital.
Oslo University Hospital is Norway's largest hospital. Biomedical research at the hospital is closely interlinked with research undertaken at the University of Oslo. More than 50% of all biomedical research in Norway is published by scientists affiliated with the hospital. Research undertaken cover basic, translational, and clinical research.
The University of Oslo is a leading European university and Norway's largest university.
