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.
