Research is one of Karolinska's core missions, with a focus on patient-oriented clinical research. Research is carried out in the care units at the hospital and in research facilities on the hospital premises.
Core facilities

Our core facilities offer research infrastructure and expertise to others within Region Stockholm, Karolinska Institutet and external parties.

Bio Clinicum

BioClinicum poses a hub for pre-clinical and clinical research with almost 100 research groups working within the same building.
