Seminars & symposia


SciLifeLab hosts a number of stand-alone seminars as well as a distinguished speaker seminar series:

SciLifeLab The Svedberg seminar series

Schedule for spring 2017

At the biomedical center in Uppsala the “SciLifeLab The Svedberg” seminar series is from spring 2015 running every other week.  This seminar series has a history from the middle of the 70s and a committee invites leading scientist from Sweden and worldwide to hold research seminars within the field of bioscience. The SciLifeLab The Svedberg Seminar series is also a research course for graduate students. By attending ten seminars, one higher education credit is achieved. More information about how to attend the course can be found at the course website.

The next speaker nomination round opens March 2017. For questions, contact thesvedberg@scilifelab.uu.se

Committee Members:

Jonas Bergquist, Stefan Bertilsson,  Olof Idevall, Simone Immler, Patric Jern, Jan Komorowski, Pär Matsson (chairman), Aris Moustakas, Jessica Nordlund, Oskar Karlsson and Sebastian Deindl.

SciLifeLab The Svedberg seminar series, Thomas Carell

Thomas Carell is heading a research group in chemical biology focused to analyze the chemistry of epigenetic programming in DNA and RNA, at the Ludwig Maximilians University, Munich, Germany. In his talk “DNA Bases beyond Watson and Crick”, he will discuss the function and distribution of specific new epigenetic marker bases, synthetic routes that enable preparation of oligonucleotides containing the new bases, and mass spectroscopic approaches to decipher their biological functions.
