Description [sv]

Utställning av forskning på Orkanenbiblioteket 2019-11-21 till 2020-04-15

Abstract [sv]

Cancer är en term som används för cirka 200 olika sjukdomar. Det de alla har gemensamt är att cellerna i kroppen börjar delas okontrollerat. 2018 fanns det 18 miljoner cancerfall över hela världen. I Sverige kommer ungefär varje tredje person att diagnostiseras med en cancersjukdom någon gång under sin livstid.

Det är en stor utmaning för vetenskapen att hitta sätt att diagnostisera och behandla dessa sjukdomar. På Malmö universitet arbetar en ny generation kemister, fysiker och biologer tillsammans i två internationella nätverk, BioCapture och GlycoImaging. Deras forskning fokuserar på att utforma antikroppar, plastkulor, som ska upptäcka cancerceller i ett tidigt skede. Kulorna är dessutom billiga att producera.

De två projekten samordnas av Börje Sellergren och Anette Gjörloff Wingren, som utbildar och handleder 19 doktorander. Utställningen Fighting Cancer with Plastic Bullets belyser doktorandernas tvärvetenskapliga arbete och deras betydelse för cancerforskningen. Biblioteket har fått bidrag av Sten K Johnsons stiftelse för att producera utställningen.

Abstract [en]

Cancer is a term used for about 200 different diseases. What they all have in common is that the cells in the body start to divide uncontrollably. In 2018 there were 18 million cancer cases around the world. In Sweden, approximately every third person will be diagnosed with a cancer disease at some point during their lifetime.A major challenge for science is to find ways to diagnose and treat these diseases. At Malmö university a new generation of chemists, physicists and biologists work in two international networks, BioCapture and GlycoImaging. Their research focus on designing plastic antibodies, bullets. The bullets are cheap to produce and aim to detect cancer cells at an early stage.

The two projects are coordinated by Börje Sellergren and Anette Gjörloff Wingren, who train and tutor 19 PhD students. This exhibition highlights the interdisciplinary work of the PhD’s and their importance for the cancer research.
