Our story

Molecular life science research is evolving rapidly. As an increasingly crossdisciplinary and collaborative endeavour, it requires combining expertise in fundamental biology with computer science, engineering, chemistry, and physics. Moreover, life science depends on advanced, often costly instruments and complex methods that are frequently beyond the capacity of an individual laboratory, or even a university.

SciLifeLab was launched in 2010 with a mission to meet these research demands through a joint initiative by four universities—KTH Royal Institute of Technology, Karolinska Institutet, Stockholm University, and Uppsala University. Today, SciLifeLab supports research activities at all major Swedish universities.
