Forskargrupper på BioMag

En av BioMag-laboratoriets starkaste sidor är forskargrupperna som förenar högklassigt kunnande från olika områden. De viktigaste av dessa är naturligtvis de tre organisationerna som grundade laboratoriet, men aktivt samarbete har också inletts med ett flertal andra forskargrupper både i hemlandet och utomlands.
