Akademiska Barn Sjukhuset

University Childrens Hospital has many different roles - county hospitals, specialty hospitals, teaching hospitals and research hospitals. In everyday life float the different roles together. That creates the prerequisite for, and explains, the experience, expertise and care available here.


University Hospital's mission

University Hospital provides specialized and highly specialized care locally, regionally, nationally and internationally. Together with our cooperation partners we follow the patient along the entire continuum of care outside our hospital. We are the leading university hospital in Sweden with focus on best clinical outcome for the patient. Quality of health care, our close collaboration with Uppsala University and our strong life sciences cluster is the basis of our international competitive clinical research and education.


Skandionkliniken - Skandion Clinic

A National project

The Skandion Clinic is a national project, established in collaboration between the seven Swedish County Councils with University hospitals.

In 2006, the County Councils formed the Joint Authority of County Councils for Advanced Radiotherapy. The Joint Authority has the duty to build and operate the clinic, create conditions for optimal treatment and develop and evaluate the clinical activities.

The Skandion Clinic is Scandinavia’s first clinic for proton therapy. Proton therapy makes it possible to treat cancer more effectively and more gently than with traditional radiation.

A visit to Skandion clinic will be offered to the participants at Protonchild conference on September 10th.


The Rudbeck Laboratory, The funcion is mainly medical research in Uppsala University and clinical pathology witin the Academic Hospital.

The main idea for planning the Rudbeck Laboratory was to create a new type of interdisciplinary research environment within the Faculty of Medicine at Uppsala University in order to develop new and more effective methods for molecular diagnostics and new therapies.

The Protonchild conference will be hosted here on September 10th.


The Rudbeck Laboratory has its name from Olof Rudbeck. He is one of Uppsala University's most significant personalities through the centuries. The young Rudbeck did what was termed "the first scientific discovery made by any Swedish". It was about lymphatic and its pathways in the human body.

In 1660 he received one professorship at the Faculty of Medicine. He held office until 1692, when he was succeeded by his son Olof Rudbeck d.y.

In the early 1660s, as an expression of his medical ambitions, he made Theatrum anatomy for dissection of the human body. One might imagine what a bold grip this was, namely to build something big on top of the university house itself, ie. Gustavianum.









Rudbeck has also become most famous for his book Atlantica, a very patriotic ancient history, which today is most regarded as learned fantasies. He also set up a botanical garden (current Linnaeus Garden), arranged boat connections to Stockholm, bridges and water pipes, etc. He was also a composer and had an amazing voice of voice, which he sometimes sounded in the cathedral.

UPSALA HANTVERKSFÖRENING has 160 years of history. All the city's artisans had since the Middle Ages been organized in different guilds that regulated conditions within the different occupations. The right to professional crafts had only professional Masters. The career always began with an apprenticeship time without pay, when he lived with the master. After hard years, an apprentice could finish a professional test and acquire the Master's letter.

The organizational forms were dissolved when a decree in 1846 proclaimed that the guilds ceased. This was the end of a nearly hundred years long battle between the guilds enemy and its defenders. In 1847, Upsala Fabriks- Hantverksförening was formed, as today those who share the Master letters. In 1915, they moved into existing premises. 1943 decides that even female professionals would have the right to become members of the association and in the same year a Master's letter was handed to a Female Master.

The Protonchild conference will eat dinner here on the 10th and lunch on 11th September.


Sven Dufva appears in the poem "Fänrik Stål's Sayings" by Johan Ludvig Runeberg in 1848, which deals with the war when Sweden lost Finland to Russia 1809.


Sven Dufva was heavily built, no major talent with a single wish to become a soldier. At the exercise, most things went wrong and he did every other thing on each order. When the war broke out, Sven had to follow the troupe with the council to stay in the troop. During the army's retreat, Svens group ordered to stop a Russian pluton by a bridge.

The superiority was too large. It was blown to retreat, but Sven did as usual the opposit and struggled alone until help come with General Sandels, but then Sven Duva had already fallen.


The legends give a picture of a brave and boldly fighting people who would have been victorious from the battle unless a few incompetent were entrusted to lead the defense. The war ended with defeat, but the resistance still got its significance. The Russian Tsar, who initially intended to incorporate Finland with Russia, changed and allowed Swedish social order and rule of law to remain in the country. It took another 108 years before Finland finally became an independent state.

The restaurant Sven Dufva has a better reputation than its name and will serve the lunch on September 10th.
