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 2017

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 next nomination round will open October 2017.

For questions, contact thesvedberg@scilifelab.uu.se

Committee Members:

Jonas Bergquist, Stefan Bertilsson,  Olof Idevall, Simone Immler, Patric Jern, Jan Komorowski, Pär Matsson (chairman), Aris Moustakas, Jessica Nordlund, Oskar Karlsson and Sebastian Deindl.

Structural Biology Discussion Group, Tanmay Bharat

Structural biology aims direct visualization of macromolecules and therefore provides the most definitive way to describe its mechanisms of action. High resolution cryo-electron microscopy (cryo-EM) is emerging and developing technique in structural biology capable of producing density maps for direct atomic modelling. Every Thursday at 9.30, we gather a discussion group to better understand what […]
