The Center for Disaster Medicine and Traumatology

National Research Center for Traumatology assigned by the Swedish National Board of Health and Welfare


Research at the center is performed at both Linköping University and Östergötland County Council. This results in a unique environment where medical practitioners, teachers, incident management staff and researchers collaborate. The center employs professionals from different scientific disciplines that contribute to a cross-disciplinary mission to expand the knowledge in disaster medicine and traumatology.

Below we present ongoing projects at KMC, organised according to Research Focus Areas and Themes (click to enlarge).
