Project Partners

The consortium consists of four institutions, two from the Czech Republic, two from Norway.




Institute of macromolecular chemistry Academy of Sciences of the Czech Republic (IMC Prague)

The Institute of Macromolecular Chemistry is an academic research institution focused on polymer science. It is the largest polymer research center in the Czech Republic and one of the largest in Europe, with more than a hundred scientists and fifty PhD students in key areas of macromolecular chemistry, physical chemistry and physics of polymers, and with interdisciplinary expertise reaching the fields of biochemistry, biophysical chemistry, tissue engineering, medicine, pharmacology and biotechnology. The uniqueness of the IMC stems from the combined experience of the IMC scientists in these areas and from the close interaction of all these specialists in one institution.



Charles University in Prague, Institute of Cellular Biology and Pathology, 1st Faculty of Medicine, Prague (CUNI Prague)

The Institute of Cellular Biology and Pathology (ICBP) is primarily engaged in systematic studies of the cell nucleus of (mainly) mammalian cells. Its long-standing interests are primarily: (large-scale) chromatin organization, integration of the processes of DNA replication and RNA synthesis / processing in the context of a functional nuclear architecture, structure of the chromatin fiber.





The Faculty of Mathematics and Natural Sciences (FMNS Oslo)

Two departments of this faculty will participate to the project:

  • Department of Chemistry (DC Oslo)

    The Polymer Group is part of the Department of Chemistry at the University of Oslo, the leading university in Norway. The Polymer Group is specialized on synthesis (ATRP and RAFT) and physico-chemical characterization of various polymeric systems. This research activity has resulted in more than 30 publications in international journals in the field during the last 3 years and much cooperation with many national and international academic partners and industrial research groups.



Norwegian Radium Hospital, Oslo University Hospital, University of Oslo, Oslo (NRH Oslo)

Oslo University Hospital is the largest general hospital in Northern Europe (<20.000 employees) and at the cancer clinic 3000 patients are treated annually. The Norwegian Radium Hospital (NRH) campus house the Institute for Cancer Research (ICR) having approximately 350 employees organized in seven departments and with a strong focus on basic as well as translational research.
