About The Karolinska Institute, Sweden – Official Website

The Karolinska Institute sometimes known as the (Royal) Caroline Institute in English is a research-led medical university in Solna within the Stockholm urban area of Sweden. The Nobel Assembly at the Karolinska Institute awards the Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine. The assembly consists of fifty professors from various medical disciplines at the university. The current rector of Karolinska Institute is Ole Petter Ottersen, who took office in August 2017. The Karolinska Institute was founded in 1810 on the island of Kungsholmen on the west side of Stockholm; the main campus was relocated decades later to Solna, just outside Stockholm. A second campus was established more recently in Flemingsberg, Huddinge, south of Stockholm. The Karolinska Institute is Sweden’s third oldest medical school, after Uppsala University (founded in 1477) and Lund University (founded in 1666). It is one of Sweden’s largest centres for training and research, accounting for 30% of the medical training and more than 40% of all academic medical and life science research conducted in Sweden. The Karolinska University Hospital, located in Solna and Huddinge, is associated with the university as a research and teaching hospital. Together they form an academic health science centre. While most of the medical programs are taught in Swedish, the bulk of the PhD projects are conducted in English. The institute’s name is a reference to the Caroleans.

Viện Karolinska, đôi khi được gọi là Viện Caroline (Hoàng gia) bằng tiếng Anh, là một trường đại học y khoa dẫn đầu về nghiên cứu ở Solna trong khu vực đô thị Stockholm của Thụy Điển. Hội đồng Nobel tại Viện Karolinska trao giải Nobel về Sinh lý học và Y học. Hội đồng bao gồm năm mươi giáo sư từ các ngành y tế khác nhau tại trường đại học. Hiệu trưởng hiện tại của Viện Karolinska là Ole Petter Ottersen, người nhậm chức vào tháng 8 năm 2017. Viện Karolinska được thành lập vào năm 1810 trên đảo Kungsholmen ở phía tây của Stockholm; khuôn viên chính đã được chuyển đến Solna, ngay bên ngoài Stockholm trong nhiều thập kỷ sau đó. Một cơ sở thứ hai được thành lập gần đây hơn ở Flemingsberg, Huddinge, phía nam Stockholm. Viện Karolinska là trường y khoa lâu đời thứ ba của Thụy Điển, sau Đại học Uppsala (thành lập năm 1477) và Đại học Lund (thành lập năm 1666). Đây là một trong những trung tâm đào tạo và nghiên cứu lớn nhất của Thụy Điển, chiếm 30% hoạt động đào tạo y khoa và hơn 40% tổng số nghiên cứu khoa học đời sống và y học hàn lâm được thực hiện ở Thụy Điển. Bệnh viện Đại học Karolinska, nằm ở Solna và Huddinge, được liên kết với trường đại học như một bệnh viện nghiên cứu và giảng dạy. Họ cùng nhau tạo thành một trung tâm khoa học sức khỏe học thuật. Trong khi hầu hết các chương trình y tế được giảng dạy bằng tiếng Thụy Điển, phần lớn các dự án tiến sĩ được thực hiện bằng tiếng Anh. Tên của viện là một tham chiếu đến Caroleans.

Doctoral (PhD) student position in translational breast cancer research

The research group

The student will join the research group of Associate Professor Theodoros Foukakis at the Department of Oncology-Pathology. The research activity of the group is in breast cancer, spanning from clinical trials to translational research and molecular biology studies of the disease. The group is located at the new research building BioClinicum in Solna.

The doctoral student project and the duties of the doctoral student

The doctoral education project will focus on patients with breast cancer treated with preoperative (neoadjuvant) therapy (NAT), and specifically in studies of residual disease found at surgery after NAT using a database of all patients treated with NAT in Stockholm since 2007, constructed with data from the regional population-based breast cancer registry. The prognostic value of clinical and pathological factors of the residual disease will be studied using regression analysis. Additionally, archival tumor material (both pretreatment biopsies and surgical specimens) of the same patients will be retrieved from the tissue biobank and potential prognostic biomarkers will be studied using immunohistochemistry and molecular biology methods (e.g. DNA sequencing).
