Life Science Technology Day 2019 - workshop on Biological Materials

The Life Science Technology Platform, together with My Hedhammar, Lars Wågberg and Francisco Javier Vilaplana, is arranging a workshop about Biological Materials. We aim to bring together all aspects of biological materials research at KTH, from biopolymers to biomedical technology, to encourage interactions across disciplines.

The program includes presentations by keynote speaker Carsten Werner, prominent KTH faculty across the field, and representatives from Cellink and Rise, and poster presentations.

Time: Wed 2019-12-11 10.00 - 17.00

Location: KTH Campus, Nya matsalen, Drottning Kristinas väg 15-19

Participating: The Life Science Technology Platform

Export to calendar


  • Keynote speaker Carsten Werner, Professor for Biofunctional Polymer Materials at Max Bergmann Center of Biomaterials and Technische Universität Dresden
  • Seven KTH scientists, across three schools and seven divisions
  • Cellink - presenting their 3D Bioprinting of human tissues and organs
  • RISE - presenting innovation support in the biomaterials area

Poster presentations

We invite posters, to be presented at the mingle lunch break.


Mingle lunch and coffee will be served.

Participation and meals are free of charge, but since the venue is limited, you need to register.

Register here no later than 3 December
