In our research, we use highly advanced analytical equipment, such as the only NanoSIMS in Scandinavia, one of only 7 Ionoptika J105 SIMS instrument worldwide and a STED super resolution optical microscope. We also have access to computational facilities. More information: Go:IMS (https://www.go-ims.gu.se/).
National and international collaborations
Our research groups have strong interdisciplinary collaborations within academia, with pharmaceutical and chemical process industries as well as with instrumentation industries, both locally and internationally. We collaborate with biological and clinical researchers in the areas of neurodegenerative disease, cancer, and diabetes, as well as with physics and chemistry researchers with a focus on materials and theory.
Publications and research grants
Our researchers have many publications in high impact journals, including Nature Reviews Chemistry, Angewandte Chemie, Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, Journal of the American Chemical Society, ACS Nano, Nano Letters, Analytical Chemistry, Journal of Physical Chemistry, Journal of Chemical Physics.
Our research groups are highly international and several researchers have been awarded prestigious research grants and awards from, among others, the European Research Council.
