Felipe Cava

I am a group leader at MIMS and researching the cell walls of bacteria.

I am Director of Umeå Hypoxic Research Facility, UHRF.

Fredrik Almqvist

I am a professor of organic chemistry and my research group looks for new solutions for infectious and neurodegenerative diseases. I am also deputy director of the Umeå Center for Microbial Research.

Johan Henriksson

I am a researcher in T-cell biology and development of new methods (bioinformatics algorithms and wet lab protocols), with special emphasis on immunotherapy and CAR T cells.
