PALS: Program for Academic Leaders in Life Science
PALS is an official collaboration aimed at connecting research leaders within the fellow programs of DDLS, SciLifeLab, and WCMTM. PALS is funded by the Knut and Alice Wallenberg Foundation in partnership with participating organizations.
Innovative, interdisciplinary projects
One of our primary goals is to promote scientific interactions among researchers. Curiosity, an interest in technology and data-driven research, as well as translational and clinical issues, take center stage. Through PALS, we support new, innovative, and interdisciplinary research collaborations among over 150 research group leaders united under the common umbrella.
Ten Swedish universities, as well as the Swedish Museum of Natural History, are part of PALS. The research group leaders have been trained at many of the world's best universities and laboratories, representing a significant addition of cutting-edge expertise and talent to the Swedish life science sector.
Annual National Meeting
Within the framework of the PALS collaboration, annual scientific meetings are organized, providing an opportunity to create a unique and close network that brings together academia and industry, as well as healthcare regions across the country.
