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 autumn 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 nomination round will open October 2017.
