Research Centres

At Sahlgrenska Academy, there are a number of research centers that gather expertise in important research fields. The research Centres are interdisciplinary meeting places for collaboration with business and society, where researchers from their area of expertise together with other actors shed light on important issues with different methods and perspectives.

National Research Centres

The Centre for Person-centred Care - GPCC is a national interdisciplinary research center established in 2010 with the support of the Swedish Government's strategic investment in research. The Wallenberg Centre for Molecular and Translational Medicine is part of a national effort to reposition Sweden as a world-leading life science nation.

UGOT Research Challenges

AgeCap – Centre for Ageing and Health, and CARe – Centre for Antibiotic Resistance Research are two of six research centres within the unique research initiative UGOT Challenges at the University of Gothenburg.

Strategic meeting places for collaboration

Research Centres at the University of Gothenburg are strategic initiatives to facilitate collaborations and stimulate the exchange of experience. They are established for a limited period and the research activity is evaluated systematically.
