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.

  • New antibiotic resistance genes found

The genes were found by searching large volumes of bacterial DNA and are published in the scientific journal Microbiome.

  • Treacherous correlation in the brain from smoking

    [12 Oct 2017] Out with the cigarette pack, put a cigarette in the mouth and light up. That is a well-known action for a smoker and, at the same time, behavior which has a stronger connection to actual drug dependency than was previously believed, research at Sahlgrenska Academy has revealed.

  • Blood Samples May Provide Patient Radiosensitivity Answers

    [9 Oct 2017] How much radiation or chemotherapy can a certain person handle? With help from blood or tissue testing, it may be possible to answer this question in advance, which in turn could improve treatment, as research at Sahlgrenska Academy shows.

  • Game app provides knowledge of person-centered care

    [3 Oct 2017] Click, swipe, listen to patients and follow the talk among the healthcare staff. Now, another step in the work towards a more person-centered care is being taken as the PCV game app is being launched. A virtual journey for greater knowledge and with tricky questions along the way.

  • Advanced Animal Modeling Reveals New Ways of Treating Malignant Melanoma

    [28 Sep 2017] Currently available treatments for malignant melanoma can cure certain patients - but not all. A group of researchers from the Sahlgrenska Cancer Center have demonstrated that an advanced new animal model known as ¿avatar mice¿ can be used in research to understand why treatment is not always successful, and by extension improve the prognosis for this form of skin cancer. Their findings are being presented in articles in two Nature Publishing journals.
