Impressions from SALSS 2010
The Swedish American Life Science Summit is a unique and provocative
forum that is life-like in its organization, pulling together people,
science and ideas. Nobel Laureate Professor Gerald Edelman keynoted
this year’s Summit with his presentation CONSCIOUSNESS – How Matter
Becomes Imagination. His lecture set the stage for the Summit by
providing the scientific and neural basis of brain origins of
imagination, and that those brain origins required for science, do not
differ for humanities, and ethical systems. Given the program
presentations that included exponential trends in life science,
converging technologies and biotech financing, a welcome and delightful
“maestoso” was found in presentations of music cognition and
neuroscience. The “maestoso” afforded the participants the opportunity
to begin to understand the intersection of man’s scientific and
humanistic imagination that will allow the scientific frontier to fully

It was a terrific SALSS event this year. It's remarkable that you
are able to bring together such amazing people to share their stories
and ideas. To building more bridges!
SALSS 2010 was very well run and truly informative. For me it was an
opportunity to meet very impressive individuals and companies from the
Swedish life science sectors that until now I have not been exposed to.
I was indeed very impressed with the high level that the science has
achieved in Sweden.

It was an extraordinary group of people, companies, and
presentations. The intellectual capital in the room is overwhelming. I
have been inspired by the amount of research being done in neuroscience
and the arts combined. I do hope that many companies' and scientists
receive the funding and resources to continue their good works. I don't
know how you do it! You are a force!

Stort tack för att Du bjöd in mig till SALSS-mötet som var mycket
bra och dessutom trevligt. Jag fick lära känna många intressanta
människor och dessutom var programmet väl utformat. Det är sällan som
man kan ge en konferens eller dess organisatör så fina betyg.
I would also like to thank you for a wonderful event that was so
very well organized. I was truly amazed at your ability to combine
science with industry. Thanks once again for the invitation.
