Welcome to Science & SciLifeLab Prize for Young Scientists scientific symposium where you will meet the 2020 and 2021 year's laureates and hear about their award-winning research. Registration is mandatory for a seat in Humanistiska Teatern including coffee and lunch. The event will be broadcast on SciLifeLab's YouTube channel.
SciLifeLab and AAAS/Science magazine have joined forces in creating the Science & SciLifeLab Prize for Young Scientists to promote young scientists early in their careers. The Prize is awarded annually to four recent Ph.D. graduates for outstanding life science research.
Don’t miss this scientific symposium where you will meet the 2020 and 2021 year´s laureates and hear about their award-winning research in the following categories:
Cell and Molecular Biology
Research in this category includes cellular and molecular processes at levels ranging from single molecule to single cell to tissue and organ systems.
Genomics, Proteomics and Systems Biology
Research in this category focuses on genomics, proteomics, integrative omics and systems biology approaches to facilitate comprehensive understanding of living cells, organisms and species.
Ecology and Environment
Research in this category encompasses interactions between organisms and their environment, and how these processes are influenced by human activity.
Research in this category aims at building on the molecular understanding of disease in humans to develop preventive, diagnostic and therapeutic approaches, including individualized medicine.
The prize is jointly operated by Science and SciLifeLab and is generously sponsored by the Knut and Alice Wallenberg Foundation.
