Acute bone fractures may soon be treated with an adhesive patch inspired by dental reconstruction techniques. Researchers at KTH report a new method which they say offers unprecedented bonding strength and a solution to the incredibly difficult problem of setting an adhesive in the wet environment inside the body.
A hormone-free women's contraceptive with no side effects is one promising use for a new technique developed by researchers in Sweden to tighten up the mucous membrane – the body’s first line of defense in protecting its inner lining.
On 1st January 2018, KTH will be launching a new structure which will see five schools replacing the previous ten.
“We are creating a structure that will provide more efficient and clearer support for our academic excellence and better reflect KTH’s breadth and expertise,” says KTH President Sigbritt Karlsson.
STH researchers Minkeun Ha’s och Thomas Lindh’s solution for management of IoT devices on behalf of caregivers received the Best Paper Award at the 19th IEEE Healthcom conference in October 2017 in Dalian, China.
KTH has signed an agreement on researcher exchange with the South Korean university Korea Advanced Institute of Science and Technology, KAIST. The collaboration is based on the donation from Rune and Kerstin Jonasson.
Researchers at the KTH Department of Chemistry have designed a molecular catalyst able to convert water into oxygen and protons at speeds similar to natural photosynthesis. The rapidly advancing field could lead to more efficient solutions for converting and storing solar energy.
