WCMM

Linköping University, the University Hospital and the County Municipality of the region Östergötland, has received a generous donation from the Knut and Alice Wallenberg to launch one of the four Wallenberg Centre for Molecular Medicine (WCMM) nodes in Sweden. Our node will focus on the medicine-technology interface, and build upon our existing strengths in research within medical technology, materials science and bioengineering.

Organized by Wallenberg Center for Molecular Medicine at Linköping University together with the research school Forum Scientium
