2 Congratulations! The right place The right phase The right time The right subject area A (b)right future

3 How to get sharp Do well in courses Find your motivation/drive Establish contacts Learn some Swedish Personal initiative

4 Uppsala & Stockholm

5 Life science regions in Sweden Over 750 life science companies in Stockholm-Uppsala 60 life science companies in Stockholm-Uppsalas business incubators Rest of Sweden 4% Göteborg 17% Malmö/Lund 20% Stockholm/ Uppsala 54% Umeå 3% Source: VINNOVA and Stockholm-Uppsala Life Science

6 Stockholm-Uppsala A dense life science region 3 million inhabitants 26 % with a university degree 750 life science companies with a workforce of over universities persons active in academic life science research 3 university hospitals GRP/capita USD

7 Stockholm-Uppsala participates in 28% of the 680 life science projects within the EUs framework 6 program.

9 Uppsala has been described as the worlds most biotech- concentrated city.

10 Biotech strip (Dag Hammarskjölds väg) Linnæus Center for Bioinformatics Ludwig Institute for Cancer Research Ångström Laboratory material sciences, physics, energy, MEMS Center for Mathematics and Information Technology Uppsala Genetics Center plant biology and forest genetics Veterinary Medicine Center University Hospital clinical research, clinical trials Uppsala Clinical Research Center Uppsala BIO SVA National Veterinary Institute Rudbeck Laboratory molecular genetics and medicine MPA Medical Products Agency BMC ICM, chemistry, pharmacology, surface biotechnology, bioinformatics EBC ecology, genetics, organismal biology

11 World-Class BIO Research Biology/Biotech/Bioinf/Biomed finds its strength in breadth and interdisciplinarity. A recent comprehensive research assessment graded 50 research groups as world leading and 100 groups of high international standard – several of these were within Biology and related fields. BIO in Uppsala was awarded a CHE excellence ranking Several large strategic, long-term research grants have in recent years gone to Biology and related interdisciplinary areas.

12 Fields for the Future Genomics and proteomics Drug research Neuroscience, cognition and behaviour Sythetic biology … etc.
