A Russian delegation from the Almazov National Medical Research Centre visited KI in June. The purpose of the visit was to discuss ongoing and strengthened collaboration.

A number of researchers at the Russian research centre have defended their theses at Karolinska Institutet under the supervision of Göran Hansson, Per Eriksson, Ulf Hedin, Thomas Sejersen, Olle Söder, Boris Zhivotovsky and Anna Kostareva, among others. The latter is an associate at Karolinska Institutet’s Department of Women's and Children's Health and is at the same time head of the Institute of Molecular Biology and Genetics at Almazov National Medical Research Centre in Russia.

The delegation was received in Aula Medica in the presence of Karolinska Institutet’s President Ole Petter Ottersen, together with researchers who in various ways participate in the Russian collaboration, including the head of KBH Olle Söder.

“Our collaboration with the Almazov Medical Centre is important to KI as it is Russia’s leading institute for cardiological research. Much of the research collaboration takes place with the Department of Women's and Children's Health here at KI,” says President Ole Petter Ottersen.
