SciLifeLab at KI
Science for Life Laboratory (SciLifeLab) is a joint effort between four Swedish universities Karolinska Institutet (KI), KTH Royal Institute of Technology, Stockholm University and Uppsala University but serves as a national resource for all of Sweden. The infrastructure at SciLifeLab includes advanced technologies for high-throughput molecular biosciences with focus on health and environmental research.
The Stockholm node of SciLifeLab is situated at Campus Solna. The close proximity to KI and the Karolinska University Hospital greatly facilitates collaborations with clinically oriented groups, and provide such groups easy access to the established infrastructure.
An interim management group has been appointed for SciLifeLab during the period January to June 2017, by the vice-chancellors of the four host universities. KI has appointed Lars Engstrand as Scientific Director, Vice-Dean of Infrastructure Stefan Eriksson has been appointed Integration Director, and the Dean of Research Anders Gustafsson is the new KI representative in the national board of SciLifeLab.
KI also has an internal KI-SciLifeLab SFO prio-group, which is temporarily appointed until autumn 2017, at which time the Board of Research may prolong the appointment. The purpose of the priority group is to allocate KI funds within the Strategic research area of SciLifeLab. During spring and summer 2017 the group will also review its own mission and mandate.
Members of the group are:
- Head of Departments representative: Pontus Aspenström (Chairperson)
- Scientific Director: Lars Engstrand
- Integration Director: Stefan Eriksson
- Facility representative: Sten Linnarsson
- Representative of researchers in general: Anna Falk
- SciLifeLab Fellows representative: rotating schedule of KI affiliated fellows every sixth months.
- Administrator: Mats Andersson
