Department of Engineering Sciences

Materials in Medicine

We are part of the division of Applied Materials Science, Department of Engineering Sciences, located at the Ångström Laboratory. The MiM group was stablished in 2005 and is headed by Prof. Håkan Engqvist.

Research at the MiM group

Welcome to the MiM group's website

Our research focuses on the interaction between synthetic materials and living tissues. We seek to understand this interaction and use it to develop biomaterials for medical devices and drug delivery systems. Our group is formed by a multidisciplinary staff with backgrounds in materials science, chemistry, and biotechnology. We conduct applied research in close collaboration with the industry and clinicians at both national and international level.
