SALSS 2009 - Best Ever
SWEDISH-AMERICAN LIFE SCIENCE SUMMIT
August 19-21, 2009 in Stockholm, Sweden.
This was the most exciting SALSS of all. Of course, I am biased but here was a summit with all the right attendees, all the right discussions, an exciting roster of presenting companies and a provocative look into the future. And if we needed any verification on how timely and relevant we were all you needed to look at was two articles in the Science section the New York Times of the following Tuesday.
Impressions from SALSS 2009
This was the best SALSS ever!!! You did a great job. The last

Dear Barbro: I just wanted to thank you for a terrific time in
Sweden. I'm very glad I attended. It is a remarkable and valuable
organization you have established. The talented pool of Barbro's Best

Claudia, Brita, Astrid and the others. Very talented indeed.

This year's SALSS brought a broader list of outstanding speakers
while maintaining the uniquely small format and Barbro's magic touch.
In these times of change and uncertainty it enabled some truly
interesting strategic discussions. Can't wait until the next meeting!

It was once again a great pleasure to be part of this year’s SALSS.
As usual, you and your organizing team put together a tremendous
program, full of relevant and insightful topics and speakers. As
with last year’s summit, I came away from this event full of additional
knowledge and the realization that the connection between Sweden and
America is truly remarkable, both from an economic, innovation and
cultural perspective. The hard work you invest in the SALSS
strengthens the special bridge between the two countries, and I am so
pleased to be a part of it.

I want to thank you for a wonderful conference and all the special
help and caring you put into it.
I'm very happy that we attended and had the chance to meet new friends and colleagues that can be helpful to each other in the years ahead. The conference, the gifts, the boat ride, the palace, the accommodations, and what we learned was all lovely. But most important, the people.
Stort tack för ett suveränt SALSS möte!! Jag förstår att det ligger
otroligt mycket slit och hårt arbete bakom, men det blev verkligen
lyckat. Liksom tidigare möten var det verkligt hög klass på
presentationer och deltagare, intressanta och inspirerande ämnen,
samtidigt ett mycket personligt ”summit” och med gott om tillfällen för
