  • First major analysis of Human Protein Atlas published

    A research article published today in Science presents the first major analysis based on the Human Protein Atlas, including a detailed picture of the proteins that are linked to cancer, the number of proteins present in the bloodstream, and the targets for all approved drugs on the market.

  • Hunt for biomarkers leads to more personal health care

    A one-size-fits-all approach to medicine is costly for the public health system and dangerous for patients. Research at KTH is looking for a way to individualise medication for better, healthier results.

  • World record in DNA analysis

    To date, scientists have been limited to running a small number of DNA samples at a time at a cost of SEK 100,000 per sample. KTH researchers have now come up with a new method which means that 5,000 samples can be run simultaneously for the same price. This cuts the cost per test result considerably and is a world record for the number of samples run in a single DNA sequence analysis.

  • First dna sequencing of cancer performed

    Now, the first so-called cancer cell line in Sweden has been DNA sequenced at Stockholm’s new Science for Life Laboratory, a national research centre, which is partly managed by KTH. The dna sequencing gives a picture of what cancer looks like and is a step towards better understanding of how cancer arises.
