International network and affiliated investigators

In CCBIO, we have extensive and increasing external collaboration. Activities such as international contacts and projects have been well established by all PIs.

International affiliated researchers

In addition to standard project collaboration, CCBIO has organized a panel of 13 international affiliated researchers in the form of adjunct positions at CCBIO, for project support, advisory roles, participation in activities organized by the CCBIO Research School for Cancer Studies (basic courses, research seminars, annual symposium), and for mentoring inititatives (see short bios of each at the bottom of this page).

CCBIO’s rationale with this network is to establish an array of experienced advisors on scientific projects, collaboration, networks, and research strategy, as well as to perform joint research in the forefront and facilitate the transfer of knowledge.

Another important aim is to enable CCBIO’s Research School to have researchbased courses on the highest level and to enable co-supervision and exchange of research- and postdoctoral fellows.

By the end of 2015, Professors Arne Östman and Jean Paul Thiery had commenced their positions. During 2016, we added another 11 highly ranked international affiliated investigators to our network, and are experiencing good results in terms of fruitful collaboration and exchange of knowledge.

Please find below short bios about all our affiliated investigators.
