Started as a strategic research program
Sahlgrenska Center for Cancer Reserch was initially part of the governmental supported strategic cancer research program BioCARE, which was run jointly by the universities of Gothenburg and Lund between 2010 - 2019. The overall aim of the program was to promote research and education of highest international standard and to facilitate the translation of acquired knowledge to society with health care and industry as the natural partners.
Until the research program was cancelled at the end of 2019, BioCARE was also host for the Cancer Research South (CARES) School. This responsibility was instead taken over by the newly established Lund University Cancer Centre (LUCC) in 2020.
Cancer Research South (CARES) School
LUCC is the current host of Cancer Research South (CARES) School, which is a graduate research school funded by the Swedish Cancer Society. We at Sahlgrenska Center for Cancer Research are part of this effort and besides our research we therefore provide education through a range of comprehensive courses and activities for PhD Students within cancer research, both at University of Gothenburg and Lund University (within LUCC).
CARES is currently being updated and will be relaunched in a new format during 2022, with new content and courses. Starting January 2022, the research school will include both on-line courses, retreats and an exchange program between clinical and pre-clinical fellows.
