Welcome to the home page of Norwegian PSC Research Center
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.
