Over half of our drugs impact proteins found on the cell membrane. These include the membrane proteins that regulate uptake of sugar by cells. Wallenberg Scholar David Drew is breaking new ground by adding to our understanding of the structure and function of transport proteins.
Wallenberg Academy Fellow Christian Göritz is studying the mechanisms underlying the formation of scar tissue. The goal is to control scarring, an ability that may ultimately lead to new therapies.
Over the past twenty years new discoveries have come thick and fast out of Magnus Berggren’s research laboratory. Just recently, for instance, the lab produced the first ever material that can change from a solid phase to a gel with the help of electricity.
