Doctoral thesis

SuMo Biomaterials centre has since the start in year 2007 generated excellent research based on long term needs of the partners. The work of SuMo researchers have generated a significant output of publications, such as research articles and doctoral theses spanning several scientific disciplines (mathematics, chemistry and physics).

The doctoral theses are available here on SuMo web page in PDF format through Chalmers publication Library by the below links.
