Elisabeth Sauer-Eriksson is a structural biologist who studies structure-function relationships of RNA-RNA and RNA protein interactions; amyloid formation. She also studies amyloidformation, and molecular mechanisms  behind host-pathogen interactions. The aim with the latter project is to aid discovery of new and improved drug candidates against infectious disease pathogens. Her group uses X-ray crystallography, chemical biology, and other in vitro biochemical and biophysical methods for their studies. Sauer-Eriksson is since 2011 Assistant Head of the Chemistry Department and examinator of the PhD program.

I am interested on the water condensation and freezing on minerals, which are widespreadly found on the terrestrial systems of Earth and the atmosphere, as well as planet Mars using the vibrational spectroscopy. 

My postdoctoral project that funded from Swedish Research Council (VR-2018-06694) aims to identify hydrated minerals on the near surface of Mars to reveal the potential water resources, and life signatures for future human explorations.
