About ACREDIT

ACREDIT is a Regional Research Network for Colorectal Cancer funded by the South-Eastern Norway Regional Health Authority (Helse Sør-Øst). The network aims to increase available knowledge in diagnosis, treatment, and care of locally advanced and metastatic colorectal cancer patients.

The ACREDIT research network is based at Akershus University Hospital (AHUS) and Oslo University Hospital (OUS) – hospitals affiliated to the University of Oslo. The PIs, one at each site and both operating as clinician–scientists (50/50), are the Group Leaders of the two principal research groups of the network: Clinical and Molecular Oncology in ColoRectal Cancer (CMOR) at AHUS and Translational Cancer Therapy at OUS. The network activities were initiated as a joint research program and have evolved into a multi-disciplinary research collaboration for advanced and metastatic colorectal cancer, applying a range of contemporary experimental and clinical scientific approaches.
