Chemical Biology

How do biomolecules work in cellular environments? In the ChemBio division, we combine and develop protein engineering, synthetic chemistry, and state-of-the-art biophysical methods (spectroscopy, live cell imaging and nanotechnology) to address cutting-edge questions in biology to meet medical challenges related to human health. Our joint expertise is strategic and spans from molecular biophysics of single molecules to cell and organism biology.

The division consists of young and active research groups:

Elin Esbjörner Winters, Assoc Prof
Protein misfolding and cell-trafficking mechanisms related to neurodegenerative disease

Anna Karlsson-Bengtsson, Prof
Role of neutrophil interaction with carbohydrate-binding proteins in the inflammatory process​

Alexandra Stubelius, Asst Prof
Nanotherapeutics for inflammatory diseases

Michaela Wenzel, Asst Prof
Mechanisms of antibiotic action and resistance

Fredrik Westerlund,  Prof
Head of Division
Nanofluidic tools for single DNA molecule biophysics

Pernilla Wittung-Stafshede, Prof
Protein folding, metal ion transport pathways, amyloid mechanisms and modulation
