The University Research Clinic for Cancer Screening at the Department of Public Health Programmes, Randers Regional Hospital, performs research in cancer screening, diagnostics and screening derived clinical procedures.

The Department manages all cancer screening programmes in the Central Denmark Region: colorectal, cervical, and breast cancer. This organisation provides exceptional opportunities for research at a high international level that can be rapidly implemented into daily clinical practice to the benefit of the citizens.

The high research level, resulted in the appointment of the Department as a University Research Clinic by Aarhus University in Ocober 2020.

Scientific focus

The scientific focus of the University Research Clinic is population-based cancer screening and research is centred on optimising cancer screening programmes – current as well as future - on a regional, national, and international level while utilising the Department's unique possibility to address cross-programme synergies.
