The Swedish Medical Nanoscience Center at Karolinska Institutet is a novel initiative aimed to promote efficient integration of cutting edge technologies and medical research. In this interdisciplinary setting, a scientific environment is established with the aim to solve biological and medical problems using various kinds of nano-technological approaches.
The objectives of the Kimmel center for Nanoscale Science is to encourage research in this burgeoning scientific discipline in general, and to help establish the links between molecular biology and nanoscale science, in particular.
The lab offers quick and comprehensive solutions matching the needs of clients applying achievements in technology in the areas of nanotechnology, biotechnology, energy-, and environment-related technologies.
The Nano-Materials Research Laboratory has a high tech specialty in sol-gel, organic-inorganic hybrid, advanced analysis/ measurements and MEMS. Using combined expertise, the lab works on the formation of thin film, particle, bulk, control of microstructure and nanostructure, as well as, development of new functional materials and key materials for devices.
This Stockholm-based research program is a collective effort of research groups with different disciplinary competencies. Basically, the development of new, innovative tools, technologies and methodologies for chemical synthesis, analysis and biochemical diagnostics, performed in nanolitre to femtolitre domains is the major goal of the programme.
