Single Molecule & Single Cell Analysis Keynote Speakers



Ulf Landegren
Principal Investigator, University of Uppsala

Ulf Landegren received his MD and PhD in Uppsala, Sweden, before working with Lee Hood at Caltech for five years. Back in Uppsala he now is professor of molecular medicine where his research is focused on developing and applying advanced molecular tools for analyzing macromolecules and their functions in body fluids and in situ. Examples of techniques from his lab include the oligonucleotide ligation assay (OLA) and padlock probes for measuring and distinguishing specific DNA and RNA sequences, and proximity ligation for highly sensitive detection of proteins or for measurement of interacting molecules.
Professor Landegren is a member of EMBO, the Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences, the Scientific Advisory Committee for European Academies, and HUGO, vice-chair of Science for Life Laboratory Uppsala, Assistant department head, Immunology, Genetics and Pathology, Member of SAB at Centers for Translational Mol Med, and Cardiovascular Research, both in the Netherlands, Member of SAB Max Planck Inst f Mol Genetics Berlin, Member/chair of SAB German Cancer Research Center Div of Structural and Functional Genomics, Heidelberg, Visiting senior scientist at RIKEN Institute, Yokohama, Japan, Fellow of School of Engineering, University of Tokyo, Japan, Co-chair of a workpackage for technologies and reagents for biobank analysis in a European infrastructure for biobanking – BBMRI, Member of SAB of Alacris Theranostics, Berlin, Germany, Chair of SAB, HaloGenomics, Uppsala. He has authored 165 peer-reviewed publications, and is inventor of 32 patents or applications, and his lab has spun out five biotech companies.
