About the Rudbeck Laboratory
The main idea for planning the Rudbeck Laboratory was to create a new type of interdisciplinary research environment within the Faculty of Medicine at Uppsala University, in order to develop new and more effective methods for molecular diagnostics and new therapies. In addition to the university's research institutions, the Academic Hospital has clinical activities with patient receptions within the premises. The Rudbeck Laboratory is also host for BioVis Platform with its advanced instruments for flow cytometry and microscopy.
Olof Rudbeck Sr
The name of the Rudbeck Laboratory is derived from Olof Rudbeck Senior who did what is often referred to as the first scientific discovery made by a Swede when he discovered the lymphatic system in the human body.
