Stockholm Life Science Conference 2021

On May 25, Karolinska Institutet is organizing  Stockholm Life Science Conference, a full-day event to co-create the life science system of the future.

The conference will reexamine the current and potential role of the sector and explore an expanded vision of life sciences that includes prevention, implementation, accountability, and “universal health preparedness”.

Expert panels and group discussions will discuss, among other things:

  • How can we accelerate the implementation of national and regional life science strategies?
  • What has covid-19 taught us about how the life science system can be developed and structured to meet common and pressing challenges?What does the new post-pandemic landscape look like, and
  • can we take advantage of the current situation to further strengthen life science systems?
  • What systemic barriers (legal, ethical, financial, structural, political) have the covid-19 pandemic shown us that must be removed to create a more resilient, fair, and sustainable society?

Stockholm Life Science Conference is organized by Karolinska Institutet in collaboration with Region Stockholm, Stockholm University and KTH Royal Institute of Technology.

“Soon we can meet again IRL”

Since the Covid outbreak, our work has been characterised by video meetings, especially in our various focus groups. Success has exceeded expectations, thanks to the fact that the approximately 70 people who are involved in the groups had time to get to know one other and the issues even before the pandemic. But we are really looking forward to being able to meet again IRL, and hopefully soon – it is so much more enjoyable!

XNK Therapeutics lays the groundwork for GMP facility in Flemingsberg

"Flemingsberg is the place in the world you want to be if you work with NK cells. There is a strong research facility here with a world-leading research group and proximity to a clinic that really knows NK cells. We recently started the construction of a new GMP facility with an associated research laboratory of 350 square meters for our NK cell therapy. The new facility is being built at Novum in Flemingsberg and, once the facility is completed in 2022, it will give us complete control over the entire development chain."
