Sahlgrenska Academy is the Faculty of Medicine at the University of Gothenburg. We train doctors, nurses, dentists and a number of sought-after care professions.
We are open to collaborations that help us see new perspectives and find better ways to prevent and treat illness. Here you will find international research at the utmost forefront. Successful research areas include ageing, person-centred care, cancer, metabolism, neuroscience, obstetrics, odontology, vaccines, and virology.
Our research and education mainly take place on the campus that is shared with public healthcare, especially at the hospitals within Sahlgrenska University Hospital.
We are in a development phase where our main campus will be the centre for the university's activities in Life Science.
Historically our research has led to great success, for example, dental implants, beta-blockers for heart failure, and the world's most-sold pharmaceutical Losec. We are particularly proud of our Nobel laureate Arvid Carlsson, who developed his discoveries about dopamine's important role in the brain at our campus.
