The Center for Disaster Medicine and Traumatology

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


The focus area deals with various aspects of traumatology. Within clinical traumatology, research is conducted in epidemiology, clinical trauma care and patient outcomes, as well as military medicine. Experimental traumatology, on the other hand, focuses on developing new methods and technology for diagnosing, monitoring and treating traumatically injured patients, from the injury event, through the entire care chain. Projects in the focus area develop methodology for the treatment of acute and non-healing wounds, investigate new methods for skin transplantation and develop new technology for wound monitoring and prehospital diagnostics.

Coordinator for the focus area ‘Traumatology’ is
Dr. Johan Junker
