Rickard Arvidsson

Assistant Professor

Thomas Backhaus

Dept. of Biological & Environmental Sciences
Main research interests: to provide empirical data on the environmental hazards of emerging pollutants (e.g. pharmaceuticals, nanoparticles), to identify overarching patterns in the (eco)toxicological action of these compounds, to improve the realism of current hazard and risk assessment approaches, and to transfer scientific knowledge into regulatory action.

Kunal Bhattacharya

Assistant Professor

Eva Blomberg

Associate Professor

Åsa Boholm

Gothenburg Research Institute at the School of Business, Economics and Law
Experineced in historical, cultural, organizational and institutional dimensions of risk. Empirical areas of interest include regulation and policy issues in the public domain, risk governance, environmentalism and concern for nature, public trust and citizen involvement, media communication, the role of science and technology in public deliberation and decision making, and the interpretation, communication and management of contested issues such as nanotechnology.

Tommy Cedervall

Assoc. Professor
Dept. of Biochemistry and Structural Biology
Expertise in the interactions between biomolecules, mostly proteins and nanomaterial. Experienced in the characterization of the identity of bound proteins in biological fluids, the affinity between protein and nanomaterial, the stoichiometry, and structure and function of bound proteins. This knowledge has been linked to studies on functional effects of nanomaterial on protein systems and on organisms. Size effects, particle stability in biological fluids and in defined protein containing buffers, and modelling of dynamic protein binding to nanoparticles in biological fluids are additional relevant research areas.

Mikael Ekvall

Bengt Fadeel

Institute of Environmental Medicine (IMM)
Expert on toxicity assessment of engineered nanomaterials, with particular focus on immune effects.

Anna Furberg


Julie Gold

Program Chef

Lars-Anders Hanson


Martin Hassellöv

Dept. of Chemistry & Molecular Biology
Expertise in the field of environmental nanometrology (development of trace detection methods for nanoparticles in complex samples), physicochemical characterization and nanoparticle fate and transport in environmental systems. Experinece from natural waters, sewage treatment systems, highway stormwaters and close collaboration with nano-ecotoxicologists.

Christoph Langhammer

Associate Professor

Sverker Molander

Dept. of Energy and Environment
Expert in environmental systems analysis of NMs, including life-cycle assessment, substance (particle) flow assessment, and risk analysis of NPs.

Ferry Nugroho


Inger Odnevall Wallinder

Dept. of Surface and Corrosion Science
Long-term expertise to characterize surface and bulk properties of nano- and micron-sized metal particles, surface reactivity, surface-protein interactions, metal release and speciation in biological media, and links to toxicity, as well as colloidal stability and mobility and environmental fate of nanoparticles.
