“Atom probes have been around for a while, but they’re unusual – the only one in Sweden is here at Chalmers. They were developed for use in metallurgy, and even today their use is virtually confined to the study of metals and other hard materials,”  says Martin Andersson, Professor of Applied Chemistry and Wallenberg Academy Fellow 2013.

Protein structure at atomic level

During his first period as a Wallenberg Academy Fellow, Martin Andersson and his research team were the first in the world to analyze tissue using an atom probe. He is now developing a method of determining the exact structure of proteins using the same tool. This may open new doors in drug development.
