Establishing nationally integrated research environments in cooperation with the national health care, pharmaceutical and biotech industry will promote world-leading research in molecular and translational medicine in order to improve human health. During the coming 10 years, 10 young researchers will be recruited to tenure track positions within the WCMM LU program. Each researcher will be appointed a generous career package to establish their research teams. At the same time the regional health care organisation, Region Skåne, appoints one half-time clinical researcher integrated to the selected research specialisation.
