At the School of Science and Technology, research is pursued in the subjects of biology, computer science, physics, chemistry, mechanical engineering and mathematics. The school’s research activities are organised around research teams and projects. Much of the research, however, revolves around our three strong research environments.
Fewer and poorer quality sperm
Örebro researchers have identified a gene that is essential in producing sperm in zebrafish. The next step is to test whether the same is true in humans.
Örebro researchers studied connection between intestinal bacteria and development of diabetes – method now published
