The Swedish Medical Nanoscience Center at Karolinska Institutet is a novel initiative aimed to promote efficient integration of cutting edge technologies and medical research.

The Swedish Medical Nanoscience Center at Karolinska Institutet is uniquely positioned within the medical faculty where medical problems guide the nanoscience development within a setting that offers a blend of technological, pre-clinical and clinical expertise.The Swedish Medical Nanoscience Center will act as a knowledge hub on the national and international arena, forming a physical platform where scientists from the fields of medicine and engineering intimately collaborate in real life. This will foster a new breed of scientists with true interdisciplinary knowledge.

Welcome to the Swedish Medical Nanoscience Center Anna Herland and Team!

Anna Herland is Associate Professor at the Swedish Medical Nanoscience Center. Research in the Herland Lab is focused on in vitro neural models and Hybrid Bioelectrical Systems. The aim of the research is to understand neuronal interactions with other neural and neurovascular cells, specifically in terms of metabolic function and neuronal activity. The core technology is based on human primary and stem cell-derived neural cells combined with fluidic and electronic device construction.
