Swedish precision medicine is an area of substantial growth and, in the last four years, 26 companies were established within this area, the vast majority having 50 employees or less. These companies are strongly connected to academia, with 72% having been spun out from the academic sector and most often originating from the larger institutions: Karolinska Institutet in Stockholm, Lund University and Uppsala University.
Linköping, located within the heart of southern Sweden, has developed into a national arena for analysis of medical imaging. AMRA, which originated at Linköping University in 2010, is highlighted both as a leading company in this space, and through its close partnership with Pfizer on pages 30-31.
