The Biomedical Surface Science programme at Malmö University creates a platform for understanding the involvement of surface science in biomedicine and biotechnology. You will get theoretical knowledge and practical skills in the areas of biomedical activities which require expertise beyond traditional disciplines of biomedicine, chemistry or biology.
- Active connections
The program is carried out in close collaboration with regional industry, and provides up to date overview on research and development work in the area of biomedical technology. Education is conducted by researchers and teachers who are participants of an industrially relevant research network called Profile “Biofilms – research center for biointerfaces”. Our experimental facilities combine chemistry, cell and molecular biology, and bioanalytical laboratories.
- Forms of study
We use different pedagogical forms, with a strong focus on research questions in development of biomedical products. The collaboration with surrounding biomedical industry is conducted through CDIO, Conceive - Design - Implement - Operate projects.
- What is Biomedical Surface Science?
Biomedical surface science refers to the knowledge and understanding of the theoretically and practically integration of surface chemistry in applied aspects of cell biology, immunology, molecular biology and nanotechnology.Biomedical surface science refers to specialised knowledge of surface chemistry in applied areas of cell biology, immunology, molecular biology, nano-biotechnology and colloid chemistry, as well as substantially knowledge on integration of these subject in biomedical surface science.
