This meeting will NOT be recorded.
This symposium series is organized between RIKEN in Japan, and the Karolinska Institute (KI) and SciLifeLab in Sweden. The symposia alternate between RIKEN and SciLifeLab/KI. The 2020 symposium will be the seventh one. The overall goals of the symposia are a) to identify common scientific interests, b) to identify complementary skills and technologies for collaborations, and c) to encourage the exchange of PhD students and postdocs between RIKEN and SciLifeLab/KI. Several collaborations between groups at KI, SciLifeLab and RIKEN started based on first contact during one of the symposia. There are several examples of PhD students from KI and SciLifeLab visiting RIKEN for a research stay.
Each symposium is centered on one specific topic. Topics from previous years are: Molecular Imaging and Genomics (2014), Structural Biology for Drug Discovery (2015), Decoding Health and Disease with a) Imaging & Disease, b) RNA & Disease, c) Single, Rare and Stem cells & Disease (2016), Life Science Frontiers in Health, Disease and Aging, with sessions a) Gene Expression in Disease and Aging, b) Neural Function, Disease and Therapy, c) Molecular Aspects of Health, Disease and Aging, d) Visualizing Health, Disease and Aging, e) Molecular Network Control (2017), Artificial Intelligence meet Life Sciences (2018), and Biomedical Data for Artificial Intelligence (2019). There were around 100 to 150 participants for each of the symposia. The previous topics covered a broad range of the SciLifeLab groups from Stockholm and Uppsala. The previous symposia held in Stockholm had participants from the whole Stockholm and Uppsala region. For each symposium we had an organization group with participants from RIKEN and SciLifeLab. The organizing members depend on the topics. This year it consists of Erik Arner (RIKEN), Magnus Boman (KTH, affiliated with KI) and Carsten Daub (KI and SciLifeLab). A tangible deliverable for the 2019 symposium was a White Paper, co-created at the symposium, edited thereafter, and structured into a quality-controlled finished paper. We will continue this series with a 2021 symposium at SciLifLab in Sweden.
