Current CBB activities

The CBB activities have now started with a common workspace in the Neo building on Thursday afternoons and with the CBB seminar series. CBB is also recruiting bioinformaticians and biostatisticians.

Recruitments within bioinformatics and biostatistics

Are you interested in recruiting a biostatistician or bioinformatician to your research group?

CBB is now coordinating recruitments within the fields of bioinformatics and biostatistics to KI Flemingsberg. If you are a researcher with an interest in recruiting a person within these fields, CBB is now offering a possibility to make joint employments. For instance, CBB can collaborate with a researcher with funding for a 50% position by supporting the remaining salary in contribution for a corresponding work with CBB activities. If you are interested in this possibility, please email us at

CBB workspace now available on Thursday afternoons

Are you working in the area of bioinformatics or biostatistics?

On Thursday afternoons, 13:00-17:00, there will be a free workspace where researchers in these fields can meet, interact and ask each other questions. Pending availability, mentors and experts from the Centre for Bioinformatics and Biostatistics will also be present.

Place: The room "Lipid" in the Neo building. See you there!
