SciLifeLab Day


Scientific Highlights

SciLifeLab researchers contribute to almost two scientific publications every day. At this event, we put forward the work behind a few of our most exciting high-impact papers.

Platform presentations

As a national center, SciLifeLab offer techniques and know-how to Swedish researchers within molecular biosciences. Come meet our platforms and learn about our services.

Keynote lectures

The event features top proteome scientists, such as Catherine Costello, Bernhard Küster, Matthias Mann, and Mathias Uhlén. Also, Olli Kallioniemi, the soon-to-be Director of SciLifeLab, will present his research in personalized medicine.

Science-Art exhibition

To explore the interplay between art and science, we have invited artists with connection to, or inspiration from, SciLifeLab scientific endeavours to exhibit their work.
