Barbro Ehnbom and her SALSS team have invited dignitaries in science, life science and healthcare to participate in a manifestation for peace and solidarity with Ukraine in Stockholm, December 11-12.
The former big pharma executive and Wall Street analyst founded the Swedish-American Life Science Summit (SALSS) 20 years ago and the conference has since then become a beloved annual tradition. Last year’s edition was supposed to be the last but with the unprecedented war in Ukraine Barbro Ehnbom felt the urge to do something.
“Now is the time to come together to show the level of knowledge we have reached and how to bring it into the future of healthcare.”
“The pandemic made us aware of how important health and medicine is for individuals and society, and that it also impacts geopolitics and industry. Now is the time to come together to show the level of knowledge we have reached and how to bring it into the future of healthcare,” says Ehnbom in an interview with Hanna Brodda.
On December 11-12, Nobel Prize Laureates, distinguished scientists, industry leaders and forceful investors will share their knowledge and, most importantly, come together and move life science and healthcare forward at Science4Peace.
“I want this to be the starting point, a stepping stone, for something bigger, the future of medicine and healthcare,” states Barbro Ehnbom.
Among the speakers will be Nobel Laureate Emmanuelle Charpentier, Chairman of the prestigious Galien Foundation, Bruno Cohen, Dr. Håkan Björklund, Chairman of Sobi, Yuval Binur from Israel, Dr. Tim Opler,Chairman, Torreya Partners, Professor Mathias Uhlen, Professor Thomas Sakmar, Rockefeller University, Mr. Ola Rosling, Dr.Gunilla Osswald, Bioartic, Ms. Oleksandra Romantsova from Centre for Civil Liberties, this year’s Nobel Prize winner.
“Our global science community can unite in a show of support and civic responsibility.”
“I had the opportunity to meet with the widow of Elie Wiesel when I was in NYC and she was an inspiration! Long term collaboration has to be a resource for science, particularly in times of war. Our global science community can unite in a show of support and civic responsibility,” says Barbro Ehnbom.
The event will take place at Bonnierhuset in Stockholm and it will also include a Gala Dinner at the Swedish History Museum.
