We use advanced optical microscopy techniques for studies of the penetration, distribution and activation of active compounds in skin and epithelial cells. The goal is to be able to understand the molecular and cellular processes involved in e.g. topical drug delivery, to improve prevention and treatment of skin cancer.

The research projects are highly interdiscplinary and involves collaboration with national and international collaborators, as well as local partners, e.g., Sahlgrenska University Hospital, and Centre for Cellular Imaging at Sahlgrenska Academy.

Installation of pulsecompressor

We have installed APE pulse-compressor unit on our experimental MPM system. Pulse duration at objective was reduced from 300 fs to < 100 fs. This is expected to significantly improve our experiments. More results to come...



PhD defence

Hanna Thomsen successfully defended her thesis on "Biophotonics targeting pharmaceutical challenges" on September 14th.
