Sometimes, even the alteration of a single nucleotide in a gene can cause serious disease. A recent study sheds light on the molecular biology behind some forms of genetic epilepsy.
Thomas Kaiserfeld is professor of history of science and ideas and has been employed at Technology and Social Change since the turn of the year.
The idea of a new division with research in the field of knowledge and democracy has for a long time been discussed at the Department of Thematic studies. Several politicians visited on Wednesday to meet the head of department and researchers.
The immune system can affect the SARS-CoV-2 spike protein, leading to the production of a misfolded spike protein called amyloid. A new study points to a possible connection between harmful amyloid production and symptoms of COVID-19.
Wen Zhong is the first DDLS Fellow that has been recruited to LiU. With the help of a postdoctoral fellowship she is now expanding her research group. “We welcome a creative, self-motivated, and proactive team-player to join the research team.”
Older women, single women and women who have children through assisted reproduction run a greater risk of complications in pregnancy and higher risk of illness generally. Malin Lindell Pettersson has taken a closer look at the health of these groups.
Efficient and environmentally friendly solar cells are required for a transition to a fossil-free energy supply. Researchers at LiU have mapped how energy flows in organic solar cells, something that previously had been unknown.
The spring Academic Ceremony 2022 will begin with seven honorary doctors holding talks about their research. On Friday 20 May, a gala concert will be held, and on Saturday 21 May, new professors and doctors will be honoured.
At LiUs Biology division researchers are constantly trying to understand more about animal behavior. One researcher is Laura Garnham, who´s doctoral thesis focuses on the emotions and behavior of the red jungelfowl.
Researchers at LiU, among other places, have created a new material that ought to be impossible. Its synthesis is, however, possible thanks to a new method that creates pressure approximately three times higher than in the Earth’s core.
How can we understand a protein when it is never still, but constantly changes shape? This is one of the challenges for LiU researchers who are studying the cancer-related protein MYC.
An international team of researchers have developed advanced computer models, or “digital twins”, of diseases, with the goal of improving diagnosis and treatment. They used one such model to identify the most important disease protein in hay fever.
Electrification is surging forward as a major part of the transition to emission-free transport. The first electrically fuelled long goods transport can hit the road soon as well as commercial airlines will offer flights on electric airplanes.
Impressive terms about finances and messages that are really pure nonsense. Some groups are more vulnerable for being misled by "financial bullshit". This is stated by researchers at Linköping University, including Gustav Tinghög, in a new study.
Growing up just outside of Milan, Claudio Cantù enjoyed a strong passion for sharks and dinosaurs. The fascination for the wonders of nature eventually led him into the world of science - where he is looking for keys to unlock doors to the genome.
Cyrine Ben Belagem, a guest PhD student from University of Sfax in Tunisia, is visiting the Division of Engineering Materials to perform material characterizations using Scanning Electron
When Swedes were asked which public authority they would most like to work for, Linköping University (LiU) turned out to be the most popular answer. LiU also ranks tenth on a list of all of Sweden’s most attractive employers.
On April 21-22, WCMM LiU invited to a symposium where around 100 people participated in the long-awaited event. "It was a very high level both in the research that was presented and in the discussions that arose", said David Engblom, Director.
It is becoming increasingly popular to grow food in cities. But how much nutrients do vegetables need? Can superfluous nutrients end up in the water? A research project led by Geneviève Metson look into different aspects of urban agriculture.
On Wednesday, 20 april 2022, the minister for digital development Khashayar Farmanbar visited the Department of Computer and Information Science together with the Linköping municipal councillor Mari Hultgren.
Now, after two years of the pandemic, it’s finally time to gather again at Borggården for the donning of the hats, spring music and speeches – from, among others, the speaker of the Swedish parliament Andreas Norlén.
"It has been great to study at LiU" an experience worth leaving my "comfort zone". Balas master thesis project is about composites and solid mechanics, an important topic for a sustainable future in the car- and aircraft- industry.
In 2015, Anna Ekström was chair of the board of Linköping University, which made the decision to build Studenthuset. She is now minister of education, and is impressed by the large building on Campus Valla.
Edwin Jager is the coordinator for a doctoral network that has been granted almost SEK 29 million from Horizon Europe. Using an interdisciplinary approach, the PhD students are learning how to develop material that can work as “textile muscles”.
