KTH Life Science Technology Platform

Life Science Technology (LST) 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.

The KTH Life Science Technology Platform connects seven thematic research areas  that mostly concerns human health and the healthcare system, but also adjacent areas, e g environment and sustainability. The common denominator of all research is the contribution to human wellbeing.

Research areas


Biomolecular Tools and Biomaterials

Infrastructure in Health
