Our groups of researcher are continuously loooking for new collaborative partners, post-doctoral fellows, Ph.D. students and project students. We are able to offer a range of different projects that can be tailored to your interests. Read more about our groups of researchers and contact our group leaders.
To understand how our nervous system functions and the mechanisms underlying its disorders is an outstanding challenge for biomedical research.
At the Department of Neuroscience, we are working hard to increase our knowledge and insights into this area as well as into large areas of our musculoskeletal system and its disorders. A major objective with our research is to develop novel strategies to prevent and treat diseases and injuries in the nervous system and musculoskeletal system. By participating in different educational programs and courses, scientists at the Department communicate their knowledge to a wide range of future professional specialists – for example nurses, physicians, physiotherapists, speech pathologists and biomedical researchers.
We are about 130 employees, 100 graduate students and numerous young postdoctoral fellows. Moreover, a large number of professionals carry out research and teaching at Uppsala University Hospital (Akademiska sjukhuset) within the framework of the Department’s activity. Basic research is predominantly carried out the Uppsala University Biomedical Center (BMC) and clinical research at various units in Akademiska sjukhuset.
Larm i ny rapport Självmord och självmordsförsök bland unga ökar, och värst är det bland unga med funktionshinder och nedsatt arbetsförmåga. Det framgår av en rapport som Ekot tagit del av.
Dr. Atle Melberg and Dr. Emmanuel Mignot in Sweden Coming back from Scandinavia last week, I had the pleasure of meeting for the first time Atle Melberg, a 59-year-old physician working in Uppsala, close to Stockholm, Sweden.
Ett chips blir snabbt tre, fyra – sen är du fast i snacksskålen resten av kvällen. Nu vet forskarna varför… Det är hjärnans belöningssystem som spelar kroppen ett spratt när vi får svårt att hålla fingrarna borta från sötsaker och snacks i allmänhet – och chips i synnerhet.
Hormone replacement therapy (HRT) significantly improves muscle function - down to the muscle fibre level - in postmenopausal women, a new study published in The Journal of Physiology shows.
London: Hormone replacement therapy (HRT) significantly improves muscle function in women - down to the muscle fibre level, a new study has found. Previous studies, monitoring walking speed and jumping height, have suggested that HRT reduces the impacts of age-related decline in muscle mass and str
