Research

Research at the Department of Medical Biochemistry represents a comprehensive approach to study biological systems at the molecular level. Scientists here study the structure and function of genes and proteins.

We are affiliated with the Wallenberg Centre of Molecular Medicine.

Among our research areas are:

Cancer

Andrei Chabes
dNTPs and maintenance of genome stability.
Anna Arnqvist
Mechanisms for stochastic and tightly controlled regulation of Helicobacter pylori adhesins.
Erik Johansson
DNA polymerase.
Nasim Sabouri
Maintenance of genome integrity by DNA helicases.
Paulina Wanrooij
The DNA damage response and mitochondrial DNA.
Sjoerd Wanrooij
Molecular mechanism of DNA repair and replication in human mitochondria.
Stefan Björklund
The Mediator complex and its function in transcriptional regulation at the molecular level.
Thomas Borén
Helicobacter pylori, Adhesion and Patho-Adaptation.

Neuroscience

Anders Olofsson
Amyloid Fibrils and Cytotoxic Oligomers.
Ludmilla Morozova-Roche
Role of amyloid formation and neuroinflammation in neurodegenerative diseases.

Infection biology

Anders Hofer
Nucleotide biosynthesis in the parasite Trypanosoma brucei.
Anna Arnqvist
Mechanisms for stochastic and tightly controlled regulation of Helicobacter pylori adhesins.
Ignacio Mir-Sanchis
Antimicrobial resistance - phage therapy.
Lars-Anders Carlson
Structure and mechanism of viral replication complexes
