Institute for Cancer Research at Oslo University Hospital has since its foundation in 1954 played a central role within the field of cancer research both in Norway and internationally. The Norwegian Cancer Symposium 2024 is dedicated to celebrate the 70th anniversary of the Institute.

 

The Institute has internationally strong research groups within cancer genetics, cancer immunology, cell and tumor biology, molecular oncology and radiation biology and a strong suite of core facilities. There is close collaboration between researchers at the Institute and clinicians and diagnosticians including surgeons, oncologists and pathologists. The Institute has seven research departments and more than 380 employees. Several employees are affiliated at both the clinic and institute. This emphasis on translational science has resulted in numerous clinical protocols based on in-house research, is organizationally under the Division of Cancer Medicine (Division Radium Hospital) and is a key partner in the Comprehensive Cancer Center at Oslo University Hospital.
