The group leaders presented their current research and their future plans with special emphasis on collaborations within CanCell. The board wa also given a tour of both locations and spent time with two groups of young scientist to discuss ways to improve the interaction and allocation of resources to increase the potential of the Centre.
The visit was concluded with brief summary of the advice from the SAB, which will be further expanded in a report. We greatly enjoyed their stay, and value their expert advice on many aspects of the centre's activities.
