The organizational structure of NoPSC :

NoPSC has "center status" at the Medical Faculty, University of Oslo and is organized within Oslo University Hospital as a section (level 4 unit) within the Department of Transplantation Medicine at the Clinic for Surgery, Inflammatory Diseases and Transplantation. To maximize the translational opportunities of NoPSC, two of the three research groups comprising NoPSC are organized at the Research Institute of Internal Medicine, Oslo University Hospital (OUS) and one within the Section for Gastroenterology and Hepatology at the Department of Transplantation Medicine.

Internally, NoPSC is organized with an external Monitoring Committee, a Scientific Advisory Board (SAB), a Management, three Research groups and a Biobank.
