Former Future Research Leaders




Mattias Alenius tittar in i kameran

The main focus in our lab is to understand how neurons and glia get their specific properties and functions. A topic that touches several basic questions in neuroscience and biology in general.



Närbild på Ann-Christin Brorsson

Protein Aggregation and Amyloid Pathogenicity. Protein misfolding and aggregation are implicated in a wide range of increasingly prevalent human diseases ranging from dementia to diabetes.


Närbild på David EngblomNeural mechanisms behind sickness and reward. Inflammatory symptoms such as fever, pain, loss of appetite and reduced well-being are major problems for persons affected by inflammatory diseases.



Närbild på Per-Erik ForssénMost people find it easy to recognise objects based on their visual appearance. For a robot on the other hand, vision is a complex process that needs to be designed from scratch. The main focus of my research group is how to do this.


Närbild på Björn GransethWe are investigating the neuronal circuit that connects the lateral geniculate nucleus (LGN) to the primary visual cortex (V1). This circuit participates in the early stages of information processing in the visual system.


Närbild på Patrick Lundström

Protein structure, dynamics and function. I use nuclear magnetic resonance, NMR, spectroscopy to study protein structure and dynamics and their relationship with protein function.


Närbild på Eva Lövbrand

Climate research at the interface of science, politics and democracy. Anthropogenic climate change is one of the most complex and politically contested environmental issues of our times. Scientifically it concerns the climatic effects of human induced greenhouse gas (GHG) emission to the atmosphere.

Luminescent Conjugated Polymers - Illuminating the Dark Matters of Biology and Pathology. The focus of our resarch is to use luminescent conjugated polymers (LCPs) to study disease related biological events, such as aggregation of proteins.


Närbild på Johanna Rosén

Arc deposition methods for the design of new materials. How far can we push the design and tailoring of materials properties for new applications? This ultimately depends on the control of atomic constituents while composing 

and structuring a material.


Chariya VirojanadaraInvestigations of graphene and its interactions with foreign atoms and molecules. Graphene is nowadays one of the most dynamic research topics in the field of nanoscience. It has potential applications in newly designed electronic devices with high charge mobility and ideal structural properties (lightness and flexibility).


Närbild på Kristin ZeilerHow medical treatment, the use of new technology as well as experience of pain and illness can form our ways of engaging with others and the world and inform and form our self-understandings.


Närbild på Cecilia ÅsbergAlzheimer's cultures, gender & the challenges of the posthumanities.
