Translational Research Center

Translational Research Center Karolinska University Hospital (TRACK) is the hospital's research hub in Huddinge. It conducts preclinical and clinical research that can quickly make a difference for both individual patients and healthcare in general.

Located in the heart of Flemingsberg Campus, TRACK brings together preclinical and clinical researchers to stimulate translational research in Huddinge. With proximity to higher education institutions, state-of-the-art service operations in imaging technology, genetics and cell therapy, there are unique conditions for knowledge exchange and faster implementation of research results.

In addition to specific service activities such as Vecura and preclinical imaging, TRACK has laboratories, cell culture rooms and shared office space. Most of the equipment is also shared, which means that expensive equipment can be used by more people and research groups can collaborate.
