Cell and Molecular Biology – DDLS symposium

April 25, 2024 @ 12:00 April 26, 2024 @ 17:00 CEST

Welcome to this Cell and Molecular Biology symposium in April, organized by the SciLifeLab & Wallenberg National Program for Data-Driven Life Science. The conference aims to cover various topics in the field of data driven life science and multiomics. This event is open to anyone in the field with an interest in the topic!

Day one, on April 25, takes place in the Birgit Thilander Lecture hall and includes presentations from local and national experts within data driven life science research – and a keynote lecture by Prof. Edda Klipp from the Humboldt University in Berlin.

Day two, on April 26, takes place in the AstraZeneca facilities in Mölndal. Here we will meet with the exciting BioVenture Hub and learn about how AstraZeneca works with data driven life science in a clinical setting.

Data-driven Life Science

The future of life science is data-driven, providing major new opportunities to explore and understand biology, human health and changing ecosystems. The SciLifeLab & Wallenberg National Program for Data-Driven Life Science (DDLS) is set up to make use of these opportunities.
