FORSKNING:

Erik Gerner holds a master of science in biotechnology and graduated from Chalmers University of Technology in 2011. Since then, Erik has worked at the Gothenburg-based medical device company Mölnlycke Health Care with a focus on developing wound care solutions for infected wounds. Since 2018, Erik pursues PhD studies at the Department of Biomaterials at University of Gothenburg. The industrial PhD project is about finding novel treatment solutions for infected wounds, with a focus on targeting the bacterial communicating system - quorum sensing. The project is co-financed by Mölnlycke and the Swedish foundation for strategic research (SSF) and involves in vitro, ex vivo and in vivo models.
