About us

SciLifeLab Gothenburg consists of units located at both University of Gothenburg and the Chalmers University of Technology.

SciLifeLab was started in 2010 as a collaboration between the four host universities: KTH, Karolinska Institutet, Stockholm University and Uppsala University and today there are SciLifeLab units spread over a large part of Sweden. In 2021 Gothenburg was selected as one of the newly appointed local SciLifeLab sites, which have the assignment to coordinate SciLifeLab activities at each site and to function as ambassadors for SciLifeLab as a whole.
