LiU Life Science Meeting

The Biomedical programmes at Linköping University, BSc Experimental and Industrial Biomedicine and MSc Experimental and Medical Biosciences, will once again organize the Linköping University Life Science Meeting.

Linköping University Life Science Meeting is a one day meeting with a focus to bring together students, graduates and team members with our partners from the life science industry, academia, the health care system and invited international lecturers. The meeting will provide an arena for networking and to make our students aware of the knowledge and skills they already have or will acquire which will be required to work at the forefront of biomedical research and innovation.
