About Chalmers Biocenter
A new era is rising, with biological model systems being studied, understood and controlled at technical universities. We have the chemical, physical and genetic tools to do this and we aim to develop new technologies for using biological systems for the best of mankind and nature.
Chalmers Biocenter is…
…happy to announce that Professors Jens Nielsen (systems biology) and Lisbeth Olsson (bioprocess technology) will be joining the faculty at Chalmers. When this new biology connects with the eminent engineering research at Chalmers, we predict that remarkable things will happen.
Our excellent students in the Bioengineering program and the
Further new initiatives at Chalmers Biocenter include programs in Quantitative Bioimaging for Systems Biology, and Computational Systems Biology, and Theoretical Biology.
Chalmers Biocenter co-ordinates…
…bioengineering activities at Chalmers with an aim to strengthen research related to biology, biotechnology, and medicine. The key elements are transdisciplinary collaborations and strategic alliances.
Chalmers Biocenter arranges...
...inspirational symposia, conferences, workshops and meetings within interesting and strategic research areas, for example, as part of one of the series:
- Functional Genomics (2007: Synthetic Biology)
Chalmers bioengineering activities include…
…research, development and education in bioimaging, biophysical chemistry, bioanalytical chemistry, food science, bionanotechnology, biopolymer technology, biomaterials, tissue engineering, biomedical engineering, biomechanics, biophysics, farmaceutical technology, biosensors, bioinformatics, biostatistics, biomorphology, molecular biotechnology, etc.
Since 1998 a specific bioscience initiative has been funded by the Chalmers foundation. An evaluation, undertaken in 2004, highlights the success of the program and points to areas where further efforts are required. (See the Evaluation report under Biocenter documents in the left menu). To carefully manage the recommendations of this evaluation and to further strengthen Chalmers' commitment to bioscience, Chalmers biocenter was instated by the president on January 1st 2005. (See the President's decision under Biocenter documents in the left menu).
