Our recently established research group is located at the well-equipped research labs of the Department of Clinical Chemistry at the Sahlgrenska University Hospital and University of Gothenburg. We collaborate and share space with the Sterky and Mondal groups, all with interests within molecular neurobiology. We also collaborate with the Landén group at the University of Gothenburg and the Sellgren group at the Karolinska Institutet.


Dr Smedler is a resident physician in psychiatry at Sahlgrenska University Hospital (SU) and researcher at Gothenburg University (GU). Prior to that, he received his MD-PhD at Karolinska Institutet and MSc in engineering physics at the Royal Institute of Technology in Stockholm. His thesis was focused on neural networks and calcium signaling. Next he moved to Gothenburg for postdoc in the group of Mikael Landén at GU 2017-2019 and medical internship at SU.
