Karolinska Institutet Discovers

The purpose of the KI Discovers series is to give insight into the latest scientific achievements across a variety of disciplines at Karolinska Institutet by highlighting new publications and recent international recruitments. The seminar series is funded by the Board of Research and hosted by Junior Faculty, with administrative support of the Communications and Public Relations Office at KI.

The seminars are held in either Campus Solna or Campus Flemingsberg between 12.00-13.00. Coffee and sandwich is served at 11.30. After the seminar, there is time for discussions. No registration is needed.
