Briefly about SciLifeLab

SciLifeLab is a national center for molecular life science research. Our mission is to provide a unique and enabling research infrastructure through cutting-edge technologies, computational support and expertise in molecular biosciences. National funding makes SciLifeLab’s services and expertise available to researchers in all of Sweden. Information about the technologies and services that are available can be found at https://www.scilifelab.se/services.

Moreover, SciLifeLab is part of a national research network together with the Wallenberg Centers for Molecular Medicine (WCMM) in Umeå, Linköping, Gothenburg and Lund. The Program for Academic Leaders in Life Science (PALS). PALS now has more than 80 Wallenberg Molecular Medicine Fellows that are part of a national network together with the SciLifeLab Fellows.

Briefly about DDLS

The SciLifeLab and Wallenberg National Program for Data-Driven Life Science (DDLS) is a 12-year initiative funded with a total of 3.1 billion SEK (about 300 MEuro, 350 MUSD) from the Knut and Alice Wallenberg Foundation. The purpose of the program is to recruit and train the next generation of data-driven life scientists and to create globally leading computational and data science capabilities in Swedish life science. Furthermore, the program aims to strengthen collaborations between universities, bridge the research communities of life sciences and data sciences, and create partnerships with industry, healthcare and other national and international actors.
