Research Groups within Analytical Chemistry
Clinical chemistry, endocrinology and neurochemistry - Jonas Bergquist
Using especially human brain tissue and lumbar cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) as a sample sources for characterisation of CSF as a biological fluid and source for biomarkers. New, high performing analytical tools are invented and improved to discover and verify novel biomarkers for improved diagnosis and prognosis of neurological diseases.
Chemical biology for Biomarker Discovery - Daniel Globisch
Biomarker Discovery, the development of new Chemical Biology-based methodologies to improve the analysis of small molecule metabolites in biological samples. We also develop new tools for mass spectrometric analysis and are focussed on elucidating microbiota metabolism.
Analysis of the aquatic carbon cycle - Jeffrey Hawkes
The aquatic carbon cycle is very complex and requires high resolution analytical techniques in order to determine the mechanisms under which reduced carbon is processed in the environment. We develop such techniques and work with collaborators in Uppsala and around the world to investigate the aquatic carbon cycle on Earth.
Biosurface and imaging mass spectrometry - Ingela Lanekoff
Imaging mass spectrometry enables generation of ion images showing the localization of molecules on a surface. The Lanekoff group uses the novel technology nano-DESI, abbreviated from nanospray desorption electrospray ionization, for mass spectrometry imaging and surface analysis.
Trace Elements and metallomics - Jean Pettersson & Marit Andersson
Plasma spectromectric techniques like ICP-AES or ICP-MS are used to measure trace amounts of elements in a big variety of samples.
Separation and mass spectrometry are techniques that are used in the Sjöberg group for the study of small molecules.
