Welcome to the info page of our virtual spring exhibition! You will find everything you need related to the exhibition here, including the lecture program. You can enter the exhibition by clicking the picture above!

This virtual exhibition will be held in place of our traditional joint spring exhibition, and it’s also for celebrating the 20th anniversary of our Biomedicum office.

Biomedicum’s first building was completed in 2001 and City-Lab has been operating in the base floor from the beginning, so 20 years already! The second building was finished in 2008 right next to the first one. A bridge named in honor of Konrad ReijoWaara (1853-1936), a prominent figure in the Medical Association Duodecim and the first editor-in-chief of the magazine of the same name, connects the buildings.
