Fighting cancer with plastic bullets
A major challenge for science is to find ways to diagnose and treat these diseases. At Malmö university a new generation of chemists, physicists and biologists work in two international networks, BioCapture and GlycoImaging. Their research focus on designing plastic antibodies, bullets. The bullets are cheap to produce and aim to detect cancer cells at an early stage.
The two projects are coordinated by Börje Sellergren and Anette Gjörloff Wingren, who train and tutor 19 PhD students. This exhibition highlights the interdisciplinary work of the PhD’s and their importance for the cancer research.
Date: November 21–April 15
You can visit the exhibition at the Orkanen Library, Nordenskiöldsgatan 10
