Collaboration with industry

For many years, a number of researchers at the Department of Molecular Biology and Genetics have collaborated on different research projects with the business sector – not only by setting up specific research collaboration, but also by employing students taking an Industrial PhD.

See a list of companies collaborating with the department's staff.

Example of the department’s collaboration with the business community:

Milk can be much more than we think

Improving infant formula. Preventing cavities in the teeth. Help for wound healing. Food for astronauts. The discovery of the protein OPN in milk proves to have great potential.
