On December 12, SciLifeLab had the privilege of hosting a visit for the Scientific Advisory Board of the Knut and Alice Wallenberg Foundation, consisting of previous Nobel Laureates. Through presentations and guided tours of selected facilities, this group of renowned scientists was given the chance to learn more about the SciLifeLab infrastructure.
The Knut and Alice Wallenberg Foundation (KAW) is a great contributor to SciLifeLab on a number of levels. Their financial support has enabled large instrumentation investments, such as the Cryo-EM technology and large-scale DNA sequencers for clinical genomics applications. In addition, KAW funding facilitates e.g. the National Sequencing Projects Initiative, Science & SciLifeLab Prize for Young Scientists and the National Bioinformatics Infrastructure Sweden.
The KAW Scientific Advisory Board, a committee consisting of previous Nobel laureates, arrived for a site visit to SciLifeLab in Stockholm on the morning of December 12. To start with, they got to listen to presentations about SciLifeLab, spanning from a general overview of the center to more in-depth descriptions of a number of infrastructure units. Afterwards, the Nobel laureates experienced guided tours of the Cryo-EM and genomics facilities.
