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.
