Uppsala BIO's 4th BIO-Ångström conference for cross-disciplinary life science applications will focus on the clinical needs for new diagnostics, and the possibilities offered by research and development. We are happy to announce Prof. Hideki Kambara, Hitachi Global R&D; Prof. Leena Peltonen, Sanger Institute and Prof. Mathias Uhlén among the key note speakers. It's time to register your abstract!

The aim of BIO-Ångström is to be the life science arena in the Stockholm-Uppsala region where researchers from different disciplines raise challenges and present solutions, and where academia and industry meet to discuss needs as well as ideas.

This year we will identify and discuss emerging questions related to new diagnostics in the human and veterinary fields.

BIO-Ångström opens up for new creative discussions on issues that should be developed in collaboration over disciplinary borders.

BIO-Ångström is a full-day conference, with time for poster presentations and mingling.
