Welcome to the Cancer Academy in the north

Cancer Academy was formed with contributions from  the Cancer Research Foundation in Northern Sweden and  the Lions Cancer Research Foundation at Umeå University. The academy is located in Umeå, also known as the city of birches. Within the Cancer Academy, we offer both regional and national education in the form of:

  • Lecture series
  • Symposia
  • Graduate Courses
  • ST medical courses

Cancer Research Foundation in Northern Sweden and 

Lions Cancer Research Foundation

contributes annually to research in oncology in northern Sweden. In addition to contributions to expensive research equipment, through the formation of the Cancer Academy, PhD students, researchers, clinics and other healthcare professionals want to gain more knowledge in the field of cancer. Some courses and programs are also aimed at administrative staff, politicians, the media, as well as patients and their close relatives.
