Welcome to the webpage of the EMBLA group

The EMBLA group - Enabling Microtechnologies for Biomedical and Life science Applications - is led by Prof. Maria Tenje and comprises researchers with backgrounds in material science, nanotechnology, chemistry and biology. The research activities of EMBLA are focused on droplet based microfluidics and organs-on-chip.

We have an interdisciplinary character of our projects and we use microfabrication techniques combined with microfluidics to develop new platforms for visualisation and characterisation of cells to learn more about the human biology. We address both fundamental research questions and develop microsystems that in the near future could find clinical and industrial applications.


We gratefully acknowledge financial support from The Swedish Research Council (VR), The Swedish Research Council Formas, Olle Engkvist Foundation, Uppsala University, Knut and Alice Wallenberg Foundation and The European Research Council.
