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:


Anna Arnqvist Lab
We study mechanisms for stochastic and tightly controlled regulation of Helicobacter pylori adhesins.
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.


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

Infection biology

Anders Hofer
We study biosynthetic pathways of nucleotides in T. brucei, G. lamblia, B. burgdorferi and other pathogens.
Ignacio Mir-Sanchis Lab
Our group studies antimicrobial resistance - phage therapy.
Jürgen Schleucher Lab
A biophysical approach to study climate change.
Lars-Anders Carlson Lab
Our group studies structure and mechanism of viral replication complexes.
Ronnie Berntsson Lab
