The six regional nodes – one at each healthcare region – work to improve the prerequisites for conducting clinical studies and for increasing the quality of the studies.
Johan Styrke is a researcher and urology specialist at Sundsvall Hospital. Thanks to support from Clinical Studies Sweden among others, he is conducting decentralised research in urology in collaboration with colleagues at the Northern Healthcare Region.
Louise Ziegler, Deputy Chief Physician at Danderyd Hospital, is one of two Swedish researchers taking part in the international network “Network for Research in Vascular Ageing”. After obtaining her doctoral degree in March, she is now looking forward to conducting projects in inflammation research and developing close collaboration with international colleagues.
Clinical Studies Sweden is a collaboration between Sweden’s six healthcare regions via regional nodes, funded and supported by the Swedish Research Council. The collaboration aims to strengthen the preconditions for conducting clinical studies. Finding solutions to joint national challenges is an important part of the collaboration. Ann Tronde works as Regional Node Coordinator at Forum South, one of the six nodes.
