Research interests

The EMBLA group is led by Prof. Maria Tenje and comprises researchers with backgrounds in material science, nanotechnology, biomedical engineering and physics. EMBLA is short for Enabling Microtechnologies 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 in projects funded by the Knut and Alice Wallenberg foundation, the European Research Council and VR.

We are located at the Ångström Laboratory at Uppsala University where we have direct access to the 2.000 m2 state-of-the-art clean room facility with advanced equipment for fabrication and characterisation of micro- and nanostructures that is part of the Swedish research infrastructure Myfab.

Since 2016 we also run a local unit 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.
