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, the Sellgren and Lundberg group at the Karolinska Institutet and with the Harrison group at
the University of Oxford.
We are located at the Sahlgrenska University Hospital, Clinical Chemistry, Bruna Stråket 16.
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. 2020 he
started residency in psychiatry at SU and his own independent research group with an ALF-position. February 2022 he was
appointed docent (associate professor) in psychiatry. This year he was also granted two different major starting grants from
the Swedish Research Council and the Wallenberg Centre for Molecular and Translational Medicine.
