The SciLifeLab and Wallenberg National Program for Data-Driven Life Science (DDLS) is a 12-year initiative funded with a total of 3,1 billion SEK from the Knut and Alice Wallenberg Foundation. The purpose of the program is to recruit and train the next-generation of data-driven life scientists and to create globally leading computational and data science capabilities in life science in Sweden.

DDLS will establish a research school for 260 PhDs, with two components, one focussing on academic PhD students and one for industrial PhD students. The aim of the DDLS Research School is to educate highly skilled and competent professionals who will make a significant contribution to the field of life science research in Sweden.

The industrial PhD students will be employed or recruited to a company in the life science sector in Sweden, aiming to link them up with strong local research environments at universities as well as with the national DDLS program. The admission process and training will take place at the participating Universities.

As the PhD candidates are admitted to a host University in Sweden, they will be enrolled as members of the DDLS Research School and are expected to take part in the DDLS Research School activities (networking events, courses, scientific visits, etc.).

The DDLS program will focus on four strategic areas of data-driven research: cell and molecular biology, evolution and biodiversity, precision medicine and diagnostics, epidemiology and biology of infection.
