About WCMMShow/Hide content

The Wallenberg Centre for Molecular Medicine (WCMM) at Linköping University is part of a national plan for Sweden to gain an internationally leading position in medical research. 

WCMM at Linköping University (LiU) was created in 2015 as a joint effort between Knut and Alice Wallenberg Foundation, Linköping University and Health care institutions constituting Region Östergötland. The aim of our center is to explore the interphase between medicine and technology, an area with large potential for in modern health care. The collaboration between researchers at the Faculty of Science and Engineering and the Faculty of Medicine and Health Sciences as well as at Linköping University Hospital has already resulted in established collaborations in the areas of imaging-diagnostics, bio-engineering and bio-materials. Thanks to the WCMM effort, we have now been able to recruit 13 new research groups from leading institutions world-wide to join our efforts in Linköping and Norrköping.

The researchers active in our center has extensive collaborations with investigators from the WCMM nodes in Göteborg, Lund and Umeå as well as SciLife laboratories in Stockholm. These interactions are supported by the National Molecular Medicine Fellows Program (NMMP), an initiative funded by Knut and Alice Wallenberg Foundation with the aim to increase nationwide interactions between research environments in Sweden.

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