Diagnostics Forum (formerly BIO-Ångström) may make a comeback

Uppsala BIO is investigating how best to reintroduce this event as an annual conference.

The BIO-Ångström conference, which began life in 2005 as a meeting place, changed its name to Diagnostics Forum in 2010 and adopted a clearer focus on highlighting medical needs, discussing research status, and reporting solutions. Although both conferences were held several times, the event has not been implemented since 2013 for priority reasons. Discussions are ongoing in Uppsala BIO to resume activities with an annual conference, but in another form.


Financing: Uppsala BIO*, sponsors
Project duration: 2005–2013 (event held approximately every second year)
