The EMBLA group is led by Dr. Maria Tenje and comprises researchers with backgrounds in material science, nanotechnology, chemistry and physics. EMBLA is short for Exploring Microtechnology for Biomedical and Life science Applications and our research is focused on translating microsystems and microfluidic solutions to applications within the life sciences. Especially, we focus on organs-on-chip and droplet-based microfluidics.
We are located at the Ångström Laboratory at Uppsala University where we have direct access to the state-of-the-art clean room facilities MSL that are part of the Swedish research infrastructure Myfab with 2.000 m2 advanced equipment for fabrication and characterisation of micro- and nanostructures. These facilities are the important basis of our research.
Since 2016 we also lead a pilot facility within SciLifeLab called Customized Microfluidics. Our mission is to advance Swedish life science research by providing support in design and fabrication of microfluidic systems customized for your specific research needs. Our service is free of charge to researchers at all Swedish universities.
