Karolinska Institutet

KIlogoFounded in 1810, Karolinska Institutet (KI) is Sweden’s only university especially focusing on biomedical sciences. In addition, KI annually awards the Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine. KI ranks as one of the world’s leading medical universities, thanks in part to the quality of its research activities, which today account for 40 per cent of all medical research in Sweden. The lab of Prof. Dr. Staffan Strömblad has conducted pioneering research on systems microscopy approaches for the study of cell migration, where live cell microscopy of migrating cancer cells is combined with mathematical analyses and modeling. KI will lead WP5, for the development of novel algorithms for multiscale and meta-scale analysis of rich and complex cell migration data sets.
