Our SciLifeLab

SciLifeLab makes it possible to better understand life. Here, life at the molecular level is examined to understand cells, molecules, and thereby humans and other life forms.
With increased knowledge, we can address societal challenges in health, environment, climate, and bioenergy.
SciLifeLab offers exclusive technology – accessible to all – a meeting place for researchers to collaborate across boundaries and break new ground. It is a Swedish initiative from which the whole world can benefit.

Organisation and management

As a joint academic effort, SciLifeLab has it’s own organisational structure and governance, but with close links to both the four founding host universities and other universities in Sweden. If you’d like to dive in to the fine print on how SciLifeLab is managed, you’re in the right section!

SciLifeLab Group Leaders

The two pillars of SciLifeLab are our national research infrastructure and our research community, and their relationship is truly synergistic. The updated Group Leader definition was approved by our Board in November 2019 and replaces previously used terms like “faculty” and “PI”, which tend to be defined differently at each university and often don’t take into account infrastructure and technology expert roles. Follow the link to find guidelines on how we define the concept of Group Leaders, including both research groups and infrastructure units.

Integration & introduction for SciLifeLab Fellows

The Integration & Introduction document for the SciLifeLab Fellows’ program is aimed to support the Fellows’ program, including recruitment, follow-up and exit processes, i.e. a reference guide for all involved stakeholders. It’s not a formal steering document, rather, it builds on other, previous decisions and university agreements.
