SciLifeLab Day in Stockholm April 29 offered a full day of scientific seminars including highlights from users of the SciLifeLab infrastructure.
“There is a whole new landscape of monogenic diseases emerging and we have now translated our technology developments into improved clinical diagnostics, making a significant difference for affected children and their families.” Said Anna Wedell, head of the Centre for Inherited Metabolic Diseases at Karolinska University Hospital, which collaborate closely with the Clinical Diagnostics platform at SciLifeLab.
740 attendees from all over Sweden also enjoyed mingling at the poster presentation of the center platform and units and their technology offer. For the first time this year the event also included a science-meets-art exhibition where talented people from the SciLifeLab community showed their work inspired by life science.
The day comprised two themes: The human proteome and Personalized medicine. One of the speakers on the later topic was Olli Kallioniemi, Professor at FiMM in Helsinki, Finland, and soon to be Director of SciLifeLab.
“I am happy to be here and hear about the technologies and the applications that have been developed at SciLifeLab. Mathias Uhlén has done a fantastic job building up the center and I am exited to take it into the next phase.” Said Olli Kallioniemi.
