Over the years, Aula Medica has hosted Nobel lectures, scientific symposia, and annual general meetings. Thanks to a donation from the Erling-Persson Family Foundation, the building could be erected in conjunction with Karolinska Institutet's 200th anniversary. The inauguration took place on October 11, 2013. The architect for Aula Medica is Wingårdh Arkitektkontor.
