Event 2018

Welcome to the annual meeting for the National Molecular Medicine Fellows Program (NMMP)

March 14 – 15, 2018, IVA Conference Centre, Grev Turegatan 16, Stockholm

A two-day meeting devoted to young group leaders in Life Science across Sweden. We offer career coaching activities, networking, research infrastructure information and a scientific symposium.

SciLifeLab and WCMM, which together span all major universities in life science in Sweden, have recently started a collaboration to support young group leaders (fellows) that are recruited to these centers. The collaboration between SciLifeLab and WCMM aims to strengthen Swedish life science by building bridges between young group leaders across Sweden and with the life science sector in Sweden.

WCMM and SciLifeLab fellows are strongly encouraged to participate, and we welcome associated WCMM group leaders and NMMP group members for selected parts of the meeting.


Important dates

Please note that all Fellows, even if not attending the meeting, are required to submit a portrait.

  • NMMP group member registration open: Early 2018


Fees and other costs

The event is free of charge.
Travel and accommodation costs for participants at the Universities in Lund, Gothenburg, Linköping and Umeå will be covered by NMMP. Contact your local WCMM research coordinator for practical details.


Proceedings and poster session

An abstract book of submitted abstracts will be printed and handed out at the event.

Each Fellow will submit a one-page portrait overview including picture, short bio and description of scientific interests and techniques used in the group. It is mandatory to use the draft document. The portrait booklet will be available in printed and digital form. Also Fellows not participating March 14-15 are expected to submit a portrait overview.

Participating NMMP group members that are not Fellows are not required to submit an Abstract or Portrait.
