  • New findings on satiety signaling from intestine

    [2 Dec 2019] A previously unknown mechanism that suppresses satiety signals from the small intestine is the main finding of a new study. This may explain, first, satiety disorders in obesity and diabetes and, second, the prompt health effects of gastric bypass, a form of bariatric surgery.

Make a difference in people's lives - become essential

At the Sahlgrenska Academy, you have the opportunity to educate yourself within many health care professions such as, dietician, x-ray nurse, pharmacist, physiotherapist, doctor, dental hygienist or midwife. With a degree from us, you will become a health care expert that truly makes a difference in people’s lives.

The actuality of public health care is never far away at Sahlgrenska academy. Both researcher and students often collaborate in teams with other health care professions and experts. As a student here, you will also have the possibility to study parts of your education or Master’s degree project abroad.

Research that makes an impactHere, at the Sahlgrenska Academy you will find international research at the upmost forefront, such as a drinkable vaccine that saves hundreds of thousands lives in developing countries or a biomarker in the spinal fluid that can predict Alzheimer decease. Historically our research has led to great success, for example dental implants, beta blockers for heart failure and the world’s most sold pharmaceutical Losec. We are especially proud of our Nobel Prize Laureate Arvid Carlsson, who’s discovery of the dopamine’s important role in the brain was made right here in our campus at Medicinareberget.
