The research environment in Sweden within the life sciences has an open culture that actively fosters teamwork, cross-disciplinary collaboration and innovation. Professor Kenneth Chien is just one of an increasing number of leading international researchers choosing to transfer his research activities to Sweden.
TECHNOLOGY IS DRIVING OUR UNDERSTANDING OF BIOLOGY
Sweden can justifiably claim to be a forerunner within genomics, molecular biology and protein science and is now further strengthening this position through increased investments in research funding and infrastructure. By applying new innovative methodologies, the aim is to drive development of new modalities for the diagnosis and treatment of major diseases.
New diagnostic technologies, such as imaging and genetic tests, personalised recommendations on life style changes or early intervention can prevent or postpone disease. By combining registries, biobanks, expertise in genomics, molecular bioscience and protein science, Sweden is contributing to advancing the understanding of why some of us develop disease while others don’t.
