About CFG.

CFG ( is a national SciLifeLab facility based at the Department of Medical Biochemistry and Biophysics in Biomedicum at Solna campus.

Your profile

Candidates must hold a university degree in a relevant subject (BSc or MSc). Prior extensive experience in mammalian cell culture is a requirement.
