Assoc. Prof. Daniel Aili

Head of the Laboratory of Molecular Materials

My research interests involves design and development of 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.

Dr Robert Selegård

Assistant professor

The common denominator in my research is peptides; from peptide libraries and antimicrobial peptides to self-assembly of peptide functionalized polymers and nanoparticles.

MSc Michael Jury

PhD student

Currently, my research covers peptide chemistry and polymer synthesis to produce hydrogels with dynamic properties for applications in biological cell culturing. This is achieved through conjugation of peptide cell adhesion motifs to tuneable polymer biomaterials.

DDS/MSc Anna Svärd

PhD student

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.
