Pilot facilities approved

Published: 2016-04-20


The Steering group of SciLifeLab in Stockholm has decided to approve 8 projects at Karolinska Institutet, KTH Royal Institute of Technology and Stockholm University to become pilot facilities at SciLifeLab.

In July 2015 The Steering group of SciLifeLab in Stockholm opened a call for proposals for development projects. A total of 30 applications were sent in and the steering group has now, after external evaluation, decided to approve 8 of these to become pilot facilities. The pilot facilities will get SFO-funding for 2 years to develop and improve their activities. They will then be evaluated and possibly become candidate facilities in the next evaluation of the SciLifeLab infrastructure. The Steering group of SciLifeLab in Uppsala are currently evaluating applications for pilot facilities at the Uppsala node.

 

The approved pilot facilities are:

 

Main applicant Pilot facility
Jan-Willem de Gier Escherichia coli strain collection for protein production
Mats Nilsson In situ sequencing facility
Joakim Lundeberg Infrastructure based on Spacial transcriptomics technology
Hjalmar Brismar Next Generation Selective Plane Illumination Microscopy for High-Resolution Tissue Imaging
Rickard Sandberg Ultra-low cost single-cell RNA-sequencing using acoustic droplet ejection
Anna Falk Human induced pluripotent stem (iPS) facility
Xiaodong Zou Electron Nanocrystallography
Alexey Amunts Computational service at the existing cry-EM facility
