About WCMM

Linköping University, the University Hospital and the County Municipality of the region Östergötland, have received a generous donation from the Knut and Alice Wallenberg Foundation to launch one of the four Wallenberg Centre for Molecular Medicine (WCMM) nodes in Sweden.

Our node focuses on medicine-technology interface and build upon our existing strengths in research within medical technology, materials science and bioengineering.

This Symposium is organized by the Wallenberg Center for Molecular Medicine at Linköping University - WCMM together with the research school and network Forum Scientium.
