About us


Science for Life Laboratory, SciLifeLab, is a national center for molecular biosciences with focus on health and environmental research. SciLifeLab is a national resource and a collaboration between four universities: Karolinska Institutet, KTH Royal Institute of Technology, Stockholm University and Uppsala University.

The center combines frontline technical expertise with advanced knowledge of translational medicine and molecular bioscience. Researchers from all of Sweden can use both the technology and the know-how that is present at SciLifeLab. Swedish researchers using the infrastructure available at SciLifeLab typically pay only for reagents and other consumables. Users from commercial companies pay the actual costs of the analyses performed.

Please visit our platforms to read more about what we offer. We also aim to build a strong research community around SciLifeLab through education and collaborative exchange.

Users of technologies and expertise provided by SciLifeLab are found within academia, industry, authorities and healthcare. SciLifeLab also encourages partnerships and mediates collaborations between players in the life science sector. More information about our on-going collaborations can be found here.

 

Vision

To be a national hub for molecular life sciences.
