LAB LIFE

THE RESEARCH GROUP

Besides working together to unravel the mysteries of adipose biology, the Spalding Lab also has a lot of fun. During workdays we lunch together to discuss the newest findings we have had in lab. However, that's not the only thing we go over as we talk through the adventures we have had during our weekends and evenings as well. With a diverse group of people such as ours there is always something to have a conversation about. Every couple of weeks we also have an activity, ranging from hiking to fine dining and competing in a pub quiz. Spalding Lab traditions include summer picnicking in one of Stockholm's parks, an extravagant Julbordet and the yearly return of our "Secret Santa".

KAROLINSKA INSTITUTET

The Spalding Lab is part of the department of Cellular and Molecular Biology at Karolinska Institutet, one of the leading medical universities in the world. The lab is housed in the Biomedicum building, one of Europe's largest labortories and a location that fosters collaborations between different groups. As such we are embedded in an organisation that is part of the frontier in biology and have the possibility for many fruitful interactions with other scientists.

STOCKHOLM

Being located in the capital of Sweden, there is always something to do when work is done. From walking the picturesque streets of Gamla Stan to finding cosy, little restaurants in Södermalm, there is always a new adventure to be had in this city. Luckily, the location of the Spalding Lab is very close to the inner city and as such it is almost impossible to miss out on these.
