ASCRO at Nordic Life Science Days Sep 2018

ASCRO attended the Nordic Life Science Days in Stockholm 11-12Sep2018 with a number of representatives being present both from the board of ASCRO and from member companies. Discussions were held with potential new members, but also with other parties such as different companies within drug development and organisations such as Sweden Bio. There are many interesting initiatives going on in Sweden, as well as in our neighboring countries, within the Life Science sector and they all have the goal to strengthen and develop this area. Two that are worth to mention are Testa center in Uppsala and the Finnish project with the national biobank and genomic mapping.
