WCMM Clinical Arena

The Wallenberg Center for Molecular Medicine (WCMM) together with the research school Forum Scientium invites you to the WCMM Clinical Arena.

The objective behind the arena lectures is to increase communication and collaboration between clinical and non-clinical scientists in Linköping and Norrköping. The lectures will include presentations from clinical scientists and allow for questions and discussion with Forum Scientium members, the WCMM Fellows, and their research groups. You will have the opportunity to learn more about interesting research being conducted here at LiU, presented on a general level making it interesting for all individuals at the medicine-engineering interface!
