GOSSIPER Seminar Series

MWLC has been supporting the GOSSIPER seminar series to enhance the interchange of ideas among researchers at KI Sweden and KI Hong Kong.

The GOSSIPER network includes 14 research groups from different departments and a research centre at KI. These are Department of Medical Biochemistry and Biophysics, Department of Cell and Molecular Biology, Department of Physiology and Pharmacology, Department of Neuroscience, Department of Clinical Science, Intervention and Technology, Department of Biosciences and Nutrition and Department of Medicine, Solna and the Ming Wai Lau Centre for Reparative Medicine. The GOSSIPER seminar series has created an environment for members of the network to share knowledge and ideas. The seminars presented covered a vast range of topics from developmental biology to regenerative medicine, cancer, stem cells, and advanced technologies.
