Research interests

Professor Joakim Lundeberg heads the division of Gene Technology, part of the School of Biotechnology, KTH Royal Institute of Technology and has a competence in molecular technology development including applied bioinformatics in the fields of genomics and transcriptomics with applications in both medicine and environment. Applications cover for example cancer, brain, heart, stem cells, plants. The research has resulted in several publications in Nature, Science, PNAS. His research group is since May 2010 located at the Science for Life Laboratory (SciLifeLab).

Prof Lundeberg also heads the National Genomics Infrastructure (NGI) platform equipped with all major massively parallel sequencing systems. NGI is among the major sequencing sites in Europe with > 30 MPS instruments (including the activities in NGI Uppsala).

Lundeberg has over 15 patent and patent applications and has established several spin-off companies based on his research.
