Prof. Daniel Aili
Head of the Laboratory of Molecular Materials
My research interests involves design and development of bioresponsive molecules, soft materials and hybrid nanoscale components and devices for a wide range of applications in biomedicine and molecular biology, including diagnostics, biosensors, drug delivery and regenerative medicine. I have a large interest in molecular self-assembly. In addition to study fundamental self-assembly processes, we explore self-assembly as a tool for creating bioresponsive and biointeractive materials and devices with different compositions, nanostructures, and functions.
Assoc. Prof. Karin Enander
My research is focused on design and interaction analysis of peptides and proteins, mainly for sensing and bioassay purposes but also in a more fundamental context. My experience also involves biosensor surface design and immobilization chemistry.
Dr Robert Selegård
The common denominator in my research is peptides; from peptide libraries and antimicrobial peptides to self-assembly of peptide functionalized polymers and nanoparticles.
Fatemeh Rasti Boroojeni
In my research I focus on designing and fabricating 4D hydrogels, 3D cell cultures and organ-on-chip. The mechanical and physical properties of this kind of hydrogel can be tuned over time by cellular activity.
In my research I study plasmonic nanoparticles for use in biosensing applications, for example in advanced wound care by ultilizing 3D substrates to increase sensor performance.
MSc Michael Jury
My research covers peptide chemistry and polymer synthesis to produce hydrogels with dynamic properties for applications in biological cell culturing. This is achieved through controlled conjugation of peptide cell adhesion motifs to tunable polymer biomaterials. Currently, we are using this as a scaffold for culturing a neuroblastoma cell line.
DDS/MSc Anna Svärd
In my research I study periodontitis (tooth-loss). I focus on improving diagnostics of this disease by measuring biomarkers with nano sensors. We are also interested in studying the effects of bacteriocins on key-pathogens such as P.gingivalis.
In my research my focus is on designing hydrogels using peptides and peptides interactions mostly coiled-coils interactions to have more control over mechanical and chemical properties of these hydrogels as biomaterials. The aim of this study is to produce tunable hydrogels with medical application as bioink or injectable hydrogel.
In my research I study how to trigger liposomal drug release for precision cancer therapy utilizing amphipathic peptides in combination with matrix metalloprotease cleavable sequences and inhibitor modules.
Dr Thuy Tran
Marie Sklodowska-Curie IF Fellow
My research is focused on developing analytical methodologies for characterization of therapeutic proteins e.g. monoclonal antibodies during their bioproduction. The methods are based on plasmonic properties of nanoparticles.
