Swedish Microfluidics in Life Science 2019

The Swedish Microfluidics in Life Science (SMILS) meeting gathers Swedish researchers in this field. The meeting is the first full-size meeting of this organization and the goal is to have the meeting every year. The meeting will highlight ongoing research in the microfluidics filed in Sweden and form a platform for networking between PhDs, postdocs, and PIs. The research in the Swedish groups will be highlighted via student presentations. Five invited speakers will also give inspiring talks and contribute to fruitful discussions.
