Spider silk biology for biomedical applications

Research focus

We use spider silk technology for medical applications. One line of research concerns making artificial spider silk fibers for use in regenerative medicine. Another line of research concerns the use of a spider silk protein domain for efficient production of proteins and peptides, in particular for the generation of novel lung surfactant preparations. Our lab is located at Karolinska Institutet and at the Swedish University of Agricultural Sciences (SLU).
