Surgical Oncology Laboratory – the folate research experts
Surgical Oncology Laboratory, SOL, (formerly a surgeon-oncology laboratory) at the Östra Hospital in Gothenburg, conducts research in surgery and oncology. SOL has internationally recognised experience of research on folates, especially on folates and colorectal cancer, with excellence in molecular biology. Isofol’s founder, Professor Bengt Gustavsson, also founded SOL.
CRO – Contract Research Organisation
Contract Research Organisation; a company that helps with the practical implementation of clinical trials, something that is absolutely necessary for a company of Isofol’s size. For example, CROs can help with statistical calculations and analyses. They can provide databases for study data, work with preclinical studies, label and distribute study drugs and be the company’s extended arm where resources and geographical distance make it difficult to work directly towards the hospitals. Among other things, Isofol collaborates with both international and local CROs such as Envigo, TFS, IDDI, LINK Medical Research, Precision for Medicine, Quartz-Bio, PK-Expert, Novotech, CMIC Shiftzero KK, Banook Group, Vigipharm, and others.
