Cancer Fund millions for research in Umeå

NEWS Cancer research at Umeå University will receive an additional SEK 59.5 million in the Swedish Cancer Society's allocation in the autumn of 2023. Umeå thus ends up in fifth place out of a total of 13 higher education institutions. KI receives the most, winning six times as much as Umeå.
