Roger Strömberg is Professor and Head of the Bioorganic Chemistry Unit at the Karolinska Institutet, Sweden.
The group designs and makes bioactive molecules (and develops synthesis methods to achieve these) in order to provide tools for biomedical problems or to explore concepts for disease therapeutics. This includes work on artificial nucleases, modified and/or conjugated biomolecules (primarily peptides and oligonucleotides) as well as ligands for specific biopolymers. The group has all equipment and localities needed for the described project. This includes fully equipped organic synthesis and biopolymer synthesis laboratory including DNA/RNA synthesizer, Peptide/PNA synthesizer, UV-Vis, CD and Fluorescence spectrometers, HPLCs, NMR-spectrometer, ESI-TOF Mass spectrometer as well as access to modelling and simulation equipment as well as software and confocal microscopy.
