K.G. Jebsen Colorectal Cancer Research Centre

Colorectal cancer is among the most common forms of cancer in Norway with over 4200 new cases annually. The center brings together experts in genetics, biology, bioinformatics, epidemiology, radiation therapy and surgery, aiming at improved and more tailored treatment for patients.

The KG Jebsen Centre for Colorectal Cancer Research is localised within Oslo University Hospital, and the members have complementary scientific background/fields of interest: genetics, biology, bioinformatics, epidemiology, oncology and surgery.

These skills, the use of cutting-edge technology and on-site know-how for clinical trials provide the means for rapid transfer of new research results into clinical practice in one of Europe’s largest cancer hospitals
