Information for students
Students at all levels are welcome to take contact for an informal discussion of possibilities for execution of a study. We are an ambitious group and our main focus at present is drug development. Accordingly, a main objective is currently to characterize and test the therapeutic capacity of our inhouse developeds drugs in various models in vitro and in vivo. We can offer studies at all levels (bachelor, ITEK, master, pregraduate, PhD). We expect you to be dedicated and work full time (including courses). The studies we can offer will change over time.

Example of short study (bachelor/ITEK): Expression and test of therapeutic inhibitor in cell culture proliferation

Example of master/pregraduate study: Interventional trial in mouse disease model

Example of PhD-study: Animal study with test of intervention in mouse disease model, and exploration of mechanism in cell cultures, combined with target analysis of human tissue samples.
