On April 10 the new SciLifeLab building in Solna was inaugurated. The Vice Chancellors of the Stockholm universities cut the ribbon to the new 6,000 square meters of office and laboratory space.
More then 300 guests came to mingle in the lobby that connects the old Alfa house with Gamma, where a few research groups and the administration moved in during the fall 2013. Before the end of 2014 around 100 more researchers will move into the new building. The Alfa and Gamma building now offer around 14,000 square meters of laboratories and office space.
“I am so proud of the research we do here at SciLifeLab and that we are bringing research from four universities together.” said Mathias Uhlén, Director of SciLifeLab. “In all we will be around 1,000 researchers at SciLifeLab before the end of the year.”
