Research School of Gastrointestinal Inflammation and Cancer


A national research school funded by the Bengt Ihre Foundation

The objective of Bengt Ihre Research School is to stimulate life-long careers with combined clinical practice and research.

Modern medical research is increasing in complexity, which necessitates extensive collaboration and knowledge transfer between clinical and basic scientists. The course curriculum will give a deeper understanding of GI pathophysiology and methods and based on twinning principles and interactions between national centres within GI research and with international partners. General scientific methodology courses should be taken at the students’ respective home university.

The mission of Bengt Ihre Research School is to educate a new generation of investigators who will apply team efforts in interdisciplinary research free of professional boundaries and to gain momentum in the training of clinically oriented PhD students. This combined approach will ensure truly translational PhD projects, from bench to bedside, to foster young researchers through a unique scholarly experience and thereby sustain Swedish gastrointestinal research at a world-class level.
