The best thing about working at NVS? My colleagues!
On June 13, the Department of Neurobiology, Care Sciences and Society (NVS) had a summer lunch. About 200 co-workers attended at Winterviken to celebrate the past year’s successes and newly appointed professors, associate professors and lecturers.
Maria Eriksdotter, Head of NVS, gave a speech in which she thanked and praised all co-workers at NVS for their great commitment and very well executed work at the department.
