Next week, innovation is in focus. Together with the Department of Biomedicine, we have invited Ulf Landegren, Professor of Molecular Medicine at the Department of Immunology, Genetics and Pathology and SciLifeLab, in Uppsala to hold the CCBIO / BBB seminar on Thursday 11.5 at 1430 in Auditorium 4, BBB.
In addition, there will be a lecture on innovation at 8.30 at BBB, room 9A109 on the 9th floor aimed at research group leaders. There will also be an opportunity to meet Ulf for individuall conversation. If you like to have an individual meeting with Ulf we your need feedback, preferably within the next Tuesday through email to Eystein or Helge.
Ulf Landegren is distinguished both through outstanding scientific efforts, but also because he has over 40 patents and applications that have been commercialized. He has started a total of six companies and two of them have been sold to Affymetrix and Agilent, respectively.
We hope to see you at a seminar with Ulf Landegren next week.
Good weekend wishes
