Seminars & symposia

SciLifeLab hosts a number of stand-alone seminars as well as a distinguished speaker seminar series:

SciLifeLab The Svedberg seminar series

Schedule for spring 2018

At the biomedical center in Uppsala the “SciLifeLab The Svedberg” seminar series is from spring 2015 running every other week.  This seminar series has a history from the middle of the 70s and a committee invites leading scientist from Sweden and worldwide to hold research seminars within the field of bioscience. The SciLifeLab The Svedberg Seminar series is also a research course for graduate students. By attending ten seminars, one higher education credit is achieved. More information about how to attend the course can be found at the course website.

The seminar series is now open for new nominations! Nominate your speaker via this form latest January 31.

SciLifeLab The Svedberg seminar series, Gregory Schneider, New sequencing techniques

Gregory Schneider is a Tenure Track assistant professor at the University of Leiden that recently was awarded. His research activities put chemistry at the center of 2D materials research with the major goal of understanding and rationalizing molecular transport through (nanoporous) two dimensional membranes.

SciLifeLab The Svedberg seminar series, Eduardo Rocha, Horizontal Gene Transfer

Eduardo Rocha is a senior scientist at CNRS, head of the Microbial Evolutionary Genomics lab at Pasteur Institute. He studies how natural selection for interactions between molecular systems and the DNA drives genome organization, and how the latter is challenged genome dynamics resulting from selection for diversification and innovation. He will speak about “Horizontal Gene Transfer: control, organisation, and functional innovation”
