  • New discovery increases understanding of how plants and bacteria see light

    [1 Sep 2016] Plants, bacteria and fungi react to light with light-sensitive proteins. Scientists from the University of Gothenburg and their Finnish colleagues from University of Jyväskylä have now determined the inner workings of one of these proteins. The results have been published in the most recent issue of Science Advances.

  • A new piece in the puzzle of understanding the aging process

    [7 Jun 2016] New research from the University of Gothenburg advances our knowledge of how cells age and may have important implications for our understanding diseases such as Alzheimer's and Parkinson's.

  • New research maps cell reactions to and defence against arsenic and cadmium

    [7 Jun 2016] New research at the University of Gothenburg shows that arsenic and cadmium, which are poisonous to humans, contribute to the clumping together of proteins in cells and the forming of aggregates, which are linked to diseases like Alzheimer's and Parkinson's. ¿But we have also succeeded in identifying a defence mechanism that prevents arsenic from being absorbed by cells,¿ said Therese Jacobson, doctoral student at the Department of Chemistry and Molecular Biology.

  • Popular textbook about thermodynamics now also available in English

    [2 Jun 2016] 'Thermodynamics Kept Simple ¿ A Molecular Approach: What is the Driving Force in the World of Molecules?' is the newest best-selling university level textbook in its field, written by Roland Kjellander, Professor emeritus in Physical Chemistry at the Department of Chemistry and Molecular Biology, University of Gothenburg.

  • New insights in the field of diabetes: Glucose reduces cell membrane fluidity

    [11 May 2016] Researchers at the Department of Chemistry and Molecular Biology have discovered that glucose makes the cellular membrane more rigid. As glucose is a major factor leading to significant health issues in patients with diabetes, this new insight may have far reaching implications in the fight against the disease.
