EMBLA group awarded Formas funding


We are pleased to announce that the EMBLA Group has been awarded a research project funded by the Formas, a Swedish Research Council for Sustainable Development.

The three-year project is led by Prof. Maria Tenje and Dr. Sofia Johansson and also involves researchers from the National Veterinary Institute, Sweden and Uppsala University. The goal of the project is to develop an on-site diagnostic tool capable of identifying whether an animal is suffering from a bacterial infection, and if so, which bacterial species is responsible for the infection, and which specific antibiotics the bacteria is susceptible to.

“Antibiotic resistance is one of the greatest challenges we face, and one that we will work on together with our combined expertise in electrical sensing, microfabrication, antibiotic susceptibility testing and veterinary medicine” Maria Tenje says.

Congratulations Maria Tenje  and Sofia Johansson!

Prof. Maria Tenje leads the Enabling Microtechnologies for Biomedical and Life science Applications Laboratory, EMBLA Lab, which is part of Biomedical Engineering at Uppsala University. During the academic year ´22-´23 Maria Tenje is Visiting Professor at UC Santa Barbara in Prof. Beth Pruitt group.
