The Department of Oncology at Umeå University was founded in 1959. We have a very close collaboration with the Oncology Clinic at the University Hospital of Northern Sweden, which is the largest oncology clinic in the region. All kinds of cancer diseases are treated with different types of modalities, like radiotherapy, chemotherapy antibody treatment of biological treatment.

Our field of research and development is very diverse. Experimental research on i.e. maglignant glioma and prostate cancer done at our research laboratory.

Continuous development work is done at the radiotherapy department, in close co-operation with the radiation physics and diagnostic radiology departments, to improve the accuracy and precision in radiotherapy treatments.

We also have a clinical research unit for clinical trials.
