At CMPS you will do your degree project in a world class environment. The focus of the research activities is within some major areas of modern biochemistry, structural biology and biophysical chemistry, covering topics such as structure, function and dynamics of enzymes, membrane proteins, molecular interactions, large macromolecular assemblies.
Depending on the nature of your project, you will have access to state-of-the art biochemical and biophysical research facilities, such as the MAX IV laboratory and the brand new NMR laboratory at the department of chemistry.
Methods used routinely are are recombinant protein expression and purification, chromatography, spectroscopy, electrophoresis, mass spectrometry, surface plasmon resonance, dynamic light scattering, X-ray crystallography and NMR.
A large proportion of the degree project performed at CMPS ultimately leads to a publication in a scientific journal.
How to find a degree project?
Several experienced research group leaders can supervise your project, on master level or bachelor level. It is common that you also get daily supervision in the lab from other persons, like postdocs or PhD-students. Therefor, always take the opportunity to ask for interesting projects when you meet teaching personell during your courses.
At LTH you follow the KFKM05 Master project Biophysical chemistry (30 hp) or the KFKL01 Bachelor project in Biophysical chemistry (15 hp). Details on how degree projects at LTH is carried out can be found at the LTH student website.
At the Science faculty quite detailed information on how to apply to the different degree project courses may be found at the Education in Chemistry pages at the Chemical Department.
If you are interested in a specific research area, you are always welcome to contact any of our researchers.
