DDLS Conference: Strategic research areas – postponed!

Virtual Event Virtual Event

November 22 @ 08:30 17:00 CET

Join us at the first conference within The SciLifeLab and Wallenberg national program for Data-Driven Life Science!

The practice of life science is continuously becoming more data-dependent. The amount and complexity of data is growing exponentially, and more scientific discoveries are enabled when data is openly available to researchers across the world. This is the basis for the SciLifeLab and Wallenberg National Program on Data-Driven Life Science (DDLS).

The program focuses on four strategic areas for data-driven research, all of which are essential for improving the lives of people as well as animals and nature, detecting and treating diseases, protecting biodiversity and creating sustainability:

  • Cell and molecular biology
  • Epidemiology and infection biology
  • Evolution and biodiversity
  • Precision medicine and diagnostics

The conference will focus on enthusing research within the four research areas and aims to bring together researchers within the field for discussion and sharing the latest within the research areas. The meeting will offer an exciting compilation of keynotes, special lectures within the four fields and opportunities to meet and discuss with prominent researchers.

Anyone with interest in the data-driven research field is welcome to participate. The full-day conference will be virtual (Zoom).

The program with confirmed speakers will be available shortly.

The conference is part of the SciLifeLab and Wallenberg national program for the DDLS program, funded by the Alice and Knut Wallenbergs Foundation.
