Cancer Research South School - CARES - graduate level
Cancer Research South (CARES) School is a graduate research school for PhD students in cancer research and is a collaboration between Lund University (LU) and University of Gothenburg (UGOT) under the umbrella of Lund University Cancer Centre (LUCC) and Sahlgrenska Cancer Center. CARES is open to all PhD students in the cancer field at both universities and is run as 2 18-months cycles during 3 year-periods (2018-2020). CARES is funded by the Swedish Cancer Society and hosted by LUCC.
The primary goal is to provide a comprehensive set of method-based and clinically-relevant one week courses. In addition, the enrolled students will also participate in local seminars, retreats and advanced seminars organised by both universities.
