Current CBB activities

Current CBB activities include a shared workspace in the Neo Building on Thursday afternoons and CBB seminar series.

CBB workspace 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: Room 8316-8317 in the Neo building. More info on access to the NEO building.

See you there!

CBB seminars

The CBB seminar series are held in the building Neo in Flemingsberg, but also on Zoom (link to seminars, password: 860017).

Time: 12:15 - 13:00 

Before the seminar, a limited number of sandwiches and drinks will be served on a “First come – first served” basis starting 12:00. Show up early and network!

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
