About the Rudbeck Laboratory

The Rudbeck Laboratory is located in the Glunten area, Uppsala Science Park, close to both BMC and the Academic Hospital. The address is Dag Hammarskjölds väg 20 (map).

The main idea for planning the Rudbeck Laboratory was to create a new type of interdisciplinary research environment within the Disciplinary Domain of Medicine and Pharmacy 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 Rudbeck Laboratory is named after the famous scholar Olof Rudbeck, Sr, who made what has been called ‘the first scientific discovery by a Swede’, the lymphatic gland and its diffusion in the human body.

For internal service and common premises, the Campus Management is responsible while Fastighet och Service Region Uppsala is responsible for the property management.
