Open webinar: How can SciLifeLab, MAX IV and ESS contribute to drug discovery and development?
November 12 @ 13:00 – 14:30 CET
During this seminar the three large-scale research infrastructures – SciLifeLab, MAX IV and ESS – will present their offer to the Life Science industry in form of advanced technologies in the shape of research infrastructure, as well as relevant data support and structures. Together they can provide technologies ranging from genomics, proteomics, genome engineering and drug discovery, to X-ray beamlines and the most powerful neutron source worldwide.
The webinar is a joint venture between Lif and InfraLife, the initiative that serve as a hub
connecting stakeholders, displaying the potential of the advanced technologies, and making these unprecedented tools accessible to be utilized in addressing complex research questions.
Who should attend?
Everyone who works within pharma industry and the Life Science-ecosystem in Sweden and is
curious about what services these three major national infrastructures can offer and how to start
a research project.
