SciLifeLab The Svedberg seminar series

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.
