National investment in precision medicine

7 December, 2018

Sahlgrenska University Hospital and Sahlgrenska Academy are participating in a national initiative focused on genetics and precision medicine, which is backed by SEK 44 million in state funding.

In the spring, the hospital will open a completely new center for genetic analysis.

“This center creates an ideal environment for collaboration within precision medicine at both national and international levels,” says Lars Palmqvist, project manager and incoming CEO of the new center.
