The Wallenberg Centre for Molecular and Translational Medicine

WCMTM - start picture

The Wallenberg Centre for Molecular and Translational Medicine is a national initiative that includes four centers at the universities of Lund, Umeå, Linköping, and Gothenburg. The goal is to create the best conditions for world-leading molecular and translational research and to build knowledge and competence among the next generation of leaders in academia and healthcare.

The centers are part of a long-term initiative by the Knut and Alice Wallenberg Foundation to increase Sweden's competitiveness in the life sciences. Together with the national research infrastructure SciLifeLab and other stakeholders, we create forums where our various research groups can collectively address current research questions and challenges.

Research and Collaboration

Our young, successful researchers are particularly focused on areas such as metabolism, neuroscience, cancer, inflammation, molecular chemistry, and other research fields within life science. The current 26 clinical and preclinical research groups within WCMTM in Gothenburg work with a translational focus to collectively find solutions to complex problems.

About us

The center is open and welcomes local, regional, and national initiatives to be part of our network and activities. Together we can benefit from the knowledge and talent of each of the different research group.
