AIMES Vision

Training

The researchers at AIMES produce interdisciplinary education programs at undergraduate and postgraduate level, designed for students at both KTH and KI.

Young Researchers

AIMES offers an environment where younger, intrinsically interdisciplinary researchers at KI and KTH are given the perfect conditions to develop their careers.

Societal Impact

AIMES participates in many activities for the wider public to help demonstrate academia's relevance in society. We work in close collaboration with healthcare and the private sector.

Promoting Innovation

Research results from AIMES benefit society by promoting our culture of innovation and entrepreneurship.

Our Projects

Tissue Microbiology

Tissue Microbiology is an approach we have pioneered in which we can study how infection progresses in the context of the living tissue. Our aim now is to harness these responses to enable alternative therapeutic approaches to control bacterial infection in the face of increasing antibiotic resistance.

Humanized Models​

To facilitate translation between basic and clinical research we are developing humanised models for bacterial infection which allow us to study host- pathogen interaction in living human tissue.​

Organs on chip

We aim to combine our different skills and disciplines to produce useful and physiologically relevant in vitro models.

Bringing Microbiology from Macro to Nano

Novel technologies will help us harness the immense potential of good bacterial biofilms, diagnose biofilm infections, and eradicate them when not wanted.​

Microfluidics for point of care diagnostics​

For innovation, collaboration is not optional anymore – and the center is a hotbed for cross fertility in the ever-evolving research field of nanobiotechnology. ​

Electrochemical Sensing & Wearable Bioelectronics

Our research combines electrochemical methods with biotechnology and materials engineering to address challenges in human health. We develop new novel medical technologies for better and healthier life.

Polymer Chemistry

Our work enables us to discover bottom-up strategies for recovery and valorization of biomacromolecules by interdisciplinary action in polymer science and biomedicine.​

Organic Chemistry

To implement our research within novel scientific areas, as well as be able to conduct multidisciplinary science with the aim of translating our research into clinical settings.​

Urology, Infection and Host Responses

To implement our research within novel scientific areas, as well as be able to conduct multidisciplinary science with the aim of translating our research into clinical settings.​

Toxicology

The goal is to further broaden our interdisciplinary basic and applied research activities towards toxicological sciences.
