To widen the range of technologies and competences that are available for Swedish researchers within Science for Life Laboratory (SciLifeLab) the board has decided to integrate technology competences from other Swedish universities into the center. These technology laboratories will complement the current center infrastructure and will be integrated into the SciLifeLab technology platform organization.
At the SciLifeLab board meeting April 13 it was decided that six such units will be financed and integrated in the center as of 2016.
”The expansion of SciLifeLab with complementary technologies means that researchers from all over Sweden get access to additional technologies and competences. It also facilitates collaboration between research groups at the involved universities and strengthens Swedish research and makes it more competitive internationally”, said Göran Sandberg, Chair of the SciLifeLab board.
The board has granted financial support to the following functions:
The platform Bioinformatics will also be complemented with a part for systems biology at Chalmers University of Technology. The unit Bioinformatics Long-term support (WABI) also expands and complements the staff in Stockholm and Uppsala with personnel in Lund, Linköping, Gothenburg and Umeå.
Since earlier there are two units within SciLifeLab that belong to universities outside the host universities:
