The Institute’s close collaboration with the clinic, its interdisciplinary approach in the intersection of computer science, biology and medicine, and innovative development of new research tools created in cooperation with the industry, all come together to form a unique set of strengths.
National and international
ICGI has a broad network of academic partners and collaborators, both nationally and internationally. In addition to our collaborations with numerous clinicians and scientists at the different clinics and institutes at Oslo University Hospital, ICGI benefits greatly from a long-lasting collaboration with The Department of Informatics at The University of Oslo and Vestfold Hospital Trust. We also have the privilege to work on patient cohorts from the hospitals in Tromsø and Drammen.
Some of our closest partners and many of our clinical patient cohorts come from institutions in the UK such as Oxford University, University College London, The University of Edinburgh, Gloucestershire Hospitals, and the University of Liverpool.
We are also trusted with clinical cohorts from Innsbruck Medical University, University of Amsterdam, UMC Utrecht, Erasmus MC, and Karolinska Institute.
Over the years, we have also partnered with a range of different companies, and our current partnership with DIPS, NVIDIA, Unilabs, DoMore Diagnostics, Room4 group and My-BioMed Biotechnology are highly valued.
Until 2017 the ICGI was also part of the Centre for Cancer Biomedicine, a Centre of Excellence established by the Norwegian Research Council in 2007 for a period of ten years. Read more about the success at www.med.uio.no/ccb
The Colorectal Cancer Research Network is an international collaboration working towards increased understanding of genetic mechanisms behind colorectal cancer, to improve treatment options. The network performs original research, across borders, and exchange patient materials and expertise to improve methods and goals. The network hosts yearly academic conferences over two days, most frequently at Queens College in Oxford, where day one focuses on basal research and day two on clinical research in colorectal cancer. The CRC Network was founded in 2013 by professors Håvard E Danielsen (Oslo), David Kerr (Oxford), Marco Novelli (London) and Ian Tomlinson (Edinburg).
