Malmö University

Malmö University is an innovative, urban and international institute of higher education, located in the centre of Malmö. We have around 1,800 employees and 24,000 students. Our research and education are characterised by the role we believe a university should play in an open society — to contribute to sustainability and equality in a scientifically grounded way with external partners and stakeholders. Identifying and addressing the challenges of the future are of highest priority.

The Department of Biomedical Science offers a programme leading to a professional qualification, Biomedical Scientist (first cycle, 180 credits), and a Masters' programme, Biomedical Surface Science (second cycle, 120 credits), as well as first and second cycle freestanding courses. The Department negotiates the multifaceted intersection between biology, chemistry, medicine, physics, and technology and the interdisciplinary approach to research and education aims to further the theoretical and practical understanding of the complex subject matter. Drawing on the balance between pure and applied research, the Department has been successful in attracting funding from regional, national, and international research funding bodies. In addition, in the pursuit of possible applications, several industry funded contract research projects are currently running at the Department.

The research at the faculty is also linked to the research center Biofilms - Research Center for Biointerfaces which combines biomedical science with clinical and translational research in medical, dental, food and environmental application areas in close collaboration with regional industry.


The project is a collaborative effort between Obducate and researchers at Malmö University, where the main technological objective of the project is to design high performance, low cost nanostructured electrodes for bioelectronic devices, which can be reproducibly manufactured with industry-scale throughput. Bioelectronics is a rapidly progressing interdisciplinary research field, which aims to integrate biomaterials and electronic elements into functional devices. The integration of the biomaterials with electronic elements, such as electrodes, chips, field-effect transistors, and piezoelectric crystals, yields hybrid bioelectronic systems that may function as biofuel cells and biosupercapacitors, as well as biosensors and bioelectronic circuitry. To reproducibly manufacture nanostructured electrodes, nanoimprint lithography, an industrially relevant technique capable of achieving nano- and micro-scale features reproducibly, scalably, and economically, will be used. Nanostructured surfaces based on different materials with nanofeatures of different sizes and shapes will be fabricated. Material properties, like di-electrical, chemical bonding vs. covalent bonding, and electrowetting characteristics, will be examined. To design and test different bioelectronics devices, both planar (without nanostructuration for control measurements) and nanostructured electrodes will be biomodified with different bioelements, such as cells, organelles, and proteins. Planar and nanostructured, bare and biomodified electrodes will be evaluated in terms of biocompatibility and biofouling.
