Kickoff for the Karolinska Institute research project
Karolinska Institutet will carry through a research project aiming at developing a digital diagnosis method for cervical cancer. The purpose is to improve the survival rate for women with cervical cancer in countries like Kenya, where the lack of pathologists prevents this disease from being detected in time. Kinondo Kwetu Medical center will take part in this project.
The start of the project took place when Professor Johan Lundin, Research director, Hakan Kucukel, software developer, and Oscar Holmström PhD student, all from the Institute for Molecular Medicine Finland, FIMM, and Sara Törnquist, midwife from Karolinska hospital, met with Harrison Kainde at Kinondo Kwetu Medical center to plan the work.
Martin Muinde, chief laboratory officer at Kinondo Kwetu, will also be engaged in the project.
