The WCMTM Seminar Series

The WCMTM community is still growing and contains experts covering a vast area of knowledge, from the molecular level to societal health challenges. Cross talking and networking are key issues.

2021 was the starting point of a new thematic series of seminars that aims to build bridges between the groups, and surrounding research environments. The aim of every seminar is to identify new possible connections to promote the mutual strive forward, in different focus areas.

New dates and topics for 2022 to be announced. 

The WCMTM Seminar Series is curated by Helena Filipsson, Johan Zelano, Björn Redfors and George Birchenough.
