Strategic research grant on cervical screening

Strategic Research grant on cervical screening awarded to  Joakim Dillner.

The Swedish Foundation for Strategic Research today awarded a strategic research grant of 32 Million Swedish Kronor (about 3,5 million Euros) on Biomarkers for Cervical Cancer Screening to Joakim Dillner.

Since 2011 the Karolinska Hospital has systematically saved the liquid-based cervical screening specimens from about 200000 women. Almost 1000 of these women have already developed invasive or in situ cervical cancer and have prediagnostic samples stored. “The strategic research grant will allow us to systematically search for, evaluate and implement new biomarkers in the cervical screening program” says Joakim Dillner.
