Group Leaders

SciLifeLab coordinates a highly collaborative research community with research conducted in the entire area of life sciences, such as molecular biology, cancer, immunology, stem cells and new biofuels. The technologies and services within our national infrastructure is used and developed in a symbiotic fashion with researchers within this community.

Below, you can find out more about the work of our Group Leaders.

A SciLifeLab Group Leader is responsible for a research group in life science, or for a technology platform or unit at SciLifeLab, and the Group Leader definition also includes the SciLifeLab Fellows. They all have a strong commitment to our center and affiliates with SciLifeLab, as well as with at least one Swedish university. SciLifeLab Group leaders are nominated by SciLifeLab site committees and infrastructure management, and processed by SciLifeLab:s Management group.
