The Svedberg Seminar Series

The SciLifeLab The Svedberg seminar series is running every other week in the Biomedical Center in Uppsala.  The seminar series’ history dates back to the middle of the 70’s. A local committee invites leading scientist from Sweden and worldwide to hold research seminars within the field of bioscience. Due to the pandemic the seminars will be held online until summer 2022.

The SciLifeLab The Svedberg Seminar series is also a research course for graduate students. By attending 10 seminars, a student may be awarded 0.5 higher education credit. More information about how to attend the course can be found at the course website.
