BioCARE - a strategic research program

Sahlgrenska Center for Cancer Research is part of the strategic cancer research program BioCARE, which is run jointly by the universities of Gothenburg and Lund. The overall aim is 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.

Cancer Research South (CARES) School

BioCARE is the 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 for PhD Students.

These courses are open for all PhD Students within BioCARE at both University of Gothenburg and Lund University and the aim of the education is to provide method-based and clinically-relevant one week courses.

The following PhD courses are available through CARES:

  1. Epigenetics in cancer research, 1.5p (University of Gothenburg)
