The Centre has collaborations both nationally and internationally, and NCMM group leaders currently report some 60 national and some 40 international collaborations.
As a part of the focus on translational research, NCMM Translational Research Group Leaders are all established with adjunct appointments in clinical or para-clinical departments at Oslo University Hospital.
A network of NCMM Associate Investigators was established in 2010. These appointments, subject to application and evaluation by a Selection Committee, are based on scientific excellence and translational merit as well as added value and compatibility with the NCMM mission. The network was extended in 2011 and 2015. NCMM has also initiated a Young Associate Investigator (YAI) program and the first two NCMM YAIs were appointed in 2014. In an open call in 2015, seven new YAIs were appointed. Altogether, the NCMM AI and YAI network consists of 21 excellent investigators.
On the European and international arenas, NCMM investigators enjoy numerous collaborations across the world (more than 40 international collaborations reported), including research interactions with the three other nodes in the Nordic EMBL Partnership and with the EMBL.
Implementation at NCMM of the practices of the EMBL in recruitment and rotation of staff at all levels also offers the opportunity of recruiting top talent at all levels on an international arena.
