Sahlgrenska Academy 

We conduct research and education in medicine, odontology and healthcare science. Top researchers, among them a Nobel Prize laureate, and young students come together under our roof – always in close contact with real-world healthcare.

We are a young enterprise that doesn’t let convention or preconception stand in the way of progress. Instead, our doors are open to collaboration – wherever it might help us to see new perspectives with better ways to prevent or treat illness.

We often choose an approach that is close to the patient. We collaborate with Sahlgrenska University Hospital and the Public Dental Service.
Here, we present a few of our co-workers and their research – eight accounts from real life to give you a picture of Sahlgrenska Academy.

  • 3D bioprinted human cartilage cells can be implanted

    [23 Mar 2017] Swedish researchers at Sahlgrenska Academy and Chalmers University of Technology have successfully induced human cartilage cells to live and grow in an animal model, using 3D bioprinting. The results will move development closer to a potential future in which it will be possible to help patients by giving them new body parts through 3D bioprinting.

  • New center for spinal cord injuries established in Gothenburg

  • Christopher Gillberg on the importance of being earnest in clinical research

    [17 Mar 2017] "If there's one thing I want to recommend to younger researchers, it is to always also stay clinically involved." Christopher Gillberg, Professor of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry, is now moving to a role as senior professor. No question for him of slowing down as he enters his 68th year.

  • New research comes to terms with old ideas about canker sores

    [16 Mar 2017] A burning pain sensation - and treatments that do not work. This is what daily life is like for many of those who suffer from recurrent aphthous stomatitis. Research from the Sahlgrenska Academy now sheds new light on the reasons behind this condition found in the mouth.
