KTH Life Science Platform

Life Science is one of six multidisciplinary focus areas at KTH that is formed by the convergence of engineering, natural and mathematical sciences with life sciences. Several research groups at KTH are world leading in their areas of expertise within life science technology.

Life Science research

For KTH researchers

News, events, and calls for KTH researchers is available on the Intranet.

KTH Life Science Platform connects seven thematic research areas  that mostly concern human health and the healthcare system, but also adjacent areas, for example, environment and sustainability. The common denominator of all research is the contribution to human well-being.

An important goal is facilitating interaction between expertise at KTH and external partners within academia, public organisations and companies interested in Life Science research.
