SciLifeLab Outreach Day in Göteborg

SciLifeLab will launch two Outreach Days per year with the aim to raise awareness of the technologies and expertise that are offered at the SciLifeLab platforms to researchers from all of Sweden.

We will visit universities around Sweden, two at each occasion, starting with Umeå and Göteborg. The first Outreach Day will focus on Genomics, Bioinformatics and Drug Discovery and Development with other platforms presenting their activities in the form of posters.
