Norwegian PSC Research Center (NoPSC) was established 19th of May 2008 at the Medical Department, Rikshospitalet upon signing of a contract between the University of Oslo and Rikshospitalet on the handling of funds from Canica A/S. The funds are exclusively dedicated to research related to basic and clinical aspects of the chronic liver disease PSC.

NoPSC is now a separate unit within the Division of Cancer Medicine, Surgery and Transplantation at Oslo University Hospital (OUH) Rikshospitalet, and is also affiliated with the Research Institute for Internal Medicine, OUH Rikshospitalet and the Institute of Clinical Medicine at the University of Oslo.

NoPSC has a broad range of both local and international collaborators (see annual reports for more information). NoPSC has also established the International PSC Study Group (www.ipscsg.org).
