WCMM Friday Club

The WCMM Friday club started in spring 2019 as a monthly scientific meeting for all clinical and preclinical PIs at WCMM Lund. It serves as a platform for presenting ongoing scientific work in each member’s research program. The informal format allows for open discussions, brainstorming and encourages new collaborations.
