SciLifeLab Uppsala

In difference to SciLifeLab Campus Solna, where almost all operations are located in two buildings; the SciLifeLab research community and units in Uppsala are spread out over the entire Uppsala University campus.

There is a, however, a main hub for SciLifeLab in Uppsala – Meetingplace Navet. Navet is a place to meet for scientists, unit staff, and visitors from within and outside the academic environment. It hosts 3 000 square meters of meeting rooms, guest rooms and offices, and an additional 8 000 square meters of laboratories in the surrounding area. The innovative architecture is designed to facilitate interdisciplinary meetings and serve as an inspiring atmosphere to promote creativity.

Research community

A large number of our Group Leaders, staff scientists and other personnel members are based in Uppsala. Being spread across campus, the research environment in Uppsala enables connections across faculties, institutions and disciplines.


There are also a number of infrastructure service units placed in Uppsala:

  • ADME (Absorption, Distribution, Metabolism, Excretion) of Therapeutics
  • Ancient DNA
  • BioImage Informatics
  • Biophysical Screening and Characterization
  • Clinical Genomics Uppsala
  • Genome Engineering Zebrafish
  • In Vitro and Systems Pharmacology
  • Medicinal Chemistry – Lead Identification.
  • Microbial Single Cell Genomics
  • National Bioinformatics Infrastructure (NBIS)
  • National Genomics Infrastructure (NGI)
  • PLA and Single Cell Proteomics

Interested in an infrastructure unit placed at another location than where you’re based?

No worries! As SciLifeLab is a national infrastructure, you can use all our units, no matter where you’re located. Many of the units also collaborate across nodes, i.e. your project may be serviced by one unit in Uppsala and one at Campus Solna, or any other of our locations.
