Stockholm University is one of the largest universities in Sweden. The Department of Molecular Biosciences – WGI (MBW) performs research on a wide range of fields spanning from projects on environmental factors involved in cancer, radiation biology, immunology and developmental biology. The Centre for Radiation Protection Research, CRPR, is an independent unit at MBW devoted to the fields of radiation biology, radioecology and radiation dosimetry. CRPR has a unique set up of radiation facilities to investigate the effects of low doses and dose-rates of low and high LET radiation on different model systems e.g. cells in culture and animals.
SU leads the biology WP5 and the activities focusing on oxidative stress and inflammatory response in vascular pathologies and cancer.
